The U.S. military is targeting kids as young as 13 online for recruitment — a blatant violation of strict laws that prohibit recruitment of anyone under the age of 16.
The Air Force, Army, and Navy are using one of the most popular video game platforms, Twitch, which has 63 MILLION users under 18, to target children — and they’ve already gotten in trouble for violating the platform’s rules with deceptive giveaways.
War is not a game. The military should NOT use deceptive and harmful tactics to recruit kids when their guards are down online — and no company should give them that opportunity.
Tell Twitch CEO Emmett Shear to ban military recruitment on the platform and protect young people from harmful recruiting practices.
