We Are Moms Against the 'Net
We are a coalition of parents and community leaders, united against the threat of computers in our local communities. As we have seen from recent news stories and Hollywood cautionary tales such as Wargames and Hackers, computers both represent and enable a terrible threat for the wellness of the minds of America's youth.

It's much better to have a conversation with your teen than wait for them to have a conversation with a cop.
- Watch Out for Your Neighbors
Underground computer saloons are a scourge on our safety and our children. If you see something, report it.
