Tips on Safe and Inclusive Gaming/Livestreaming for Families


Knowing that there will doubtlessly be an increase in gaming and livestreaming during the time of school closures, the Anti-Defamation League has provided two great resources to help navigate these entertainment streams for families.

The first is an article, Encourage Inclusive and Safe Gaming During COVID-19. It is full of information and practical tips to help parents and kids navigate safely and in a welcoming way while online gaming/livestreaming.

The second is a free archived webinar presented 4/2/20: Fighting Hate From Home: Safe and Inclusive Online Gaming for Your Family in the Days of Social Distancing. This 56 minute webinar is described as: "Our focus this week will be on the world of online games: how gaming can foster positive social experiences for people of all ages during this time of social isolation, and how you and your family may be exposed to hate and harassment and smart safety practices you can take. "

A special shout-out to Jenna Gilles-Turner of the Chippewa Falls (WI) Public Library for sharing these links with us!
