Enough Is Enough® (EIE), a non-partisan, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, emerged in 1994 as the national leader on the front lines to make the Internet safer for children and families. Since then, EIE has pioneered efforts to confront online pornography, child pornography, child stalking, sexual predation and other forms of online victimization.
By leveraging its expertise, growing national partnership network and positive reputation among the public, media, law enforcement, and Internet industry, EIE continues to advance innovative initiatives and effective communication strategies to protect children online.
EIE has employed a three-pronged, preventative approach to: (1) raise public awareness and educate the public on Internet safety; (2) advise and encourage the technology industry to implement viable technology solutions and family-friendly corporate policies; and (3) promote legal solutions by calling for aggressive enforcement of existing laws and enactment of new laws to stop the exploitation and victimization of our children online.
In September 2005, EIE received support from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, U.S. Department of Justice, and other partners to begin a new program--Internet Safety 101SM--to educate and empower parents, guardians, and other adult caregivers to implement Internet safety rules and software tools (Rules 'N Tools) and provide communities with information and resources to support local action to markedly increase the safety of children online.
EIE piloted the multi-media, award-winning Internet Safety 101 program in Virginia in 2008-2009 with the Virginia PTA, the Virginia Verizon Foundation and the Virginia Attorney General's Office, reaching over 5,000 parents, educators and other caring adults in the state. In 2010, EIE launched the program nationally, providing adults with the knowledge and resources to protect children from pornography, sexual predators, cyberbullies and threats relating to social networking sites, online gaming and mobile devices.
