Melania Trump spoke out against bullying and abuse on social media during her speech to the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday.

“It remains our generation’s imperative to take responsibility for what our children learn,” the first lady said. “We must turn our focus right now to the message and content they’re exposed to on a daily basis through social media, the bullying, the experience online and in person.”

“No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorized, bullied, isolated, or afraid,” Melania continued.

She called on all of the countries in the UN to support her initiative. The First Lady previously went after cyberbullying in a speech during the 2016 election.

Her address to the UN also focused on the joy of raising children, and asked members to embrace “parenthood’s noble calling.”

FLOTUS explained that parents must educate children “to ensure they are prepared to accept the torch of leadership for the world of tomorrow.”

“Nothing could be more urgent or noble a cause then preparing children for adulthood with true moral clarity and responsibility,” Trump concluded.
