Senator Richard Blumenthal and Attorney General Tong
hold roundtable discussion at New Britain High School

On Thursday, United States Senator Richard Blumenthal and Connecticut Attorney General William Tong met with students, staff, and administrators at New Britain High School for a roundtable discussion regarding TikTok and other social media platforms.

The roundtable was held in response to some of the recent TikTok challenges happening inside schools across the country. Participants discussed how they want to cut down on the harmful content affecting teenagers and, in some cases, younger children.

"What we have to talk about is how are we all going to come together to solve the problems in the community, because we're just a microcosm of our community, our students are coming with challenges that their families also have," said Superintendent Nancy Sarra. "So, while we can look at some of the symptoms that we are seeing presenting here, we have to look at the larger community and we have to stop the misinformation. We have to stop the people who just want that two seconds of fame or just continuing to, to celebrate events that shouldn't be celebrated."

The roundtable happened a week after Tong sent a letter to the CEO of TikTok asking for a sit-down meeting in Connecticut. The attorney general wrote in that letter that he wants TikTok to commit to reforms to stop the spread of dangerous content.
