    Hi Rosalind -

    We'd love to have Common Sense Media present at our conference, but there needs to be direct ties from your proposal to our mission. We aren't simply a technology conference; we're focused on global collaboration and ensuring access to education for all. 

    Please take a look at our mission: and consider revising!

    Thank you,

    Lucy Gray
