Be Aware: PORN HARMS Campaign launched by Morality In Media


Washington, DC – Morality in Media today announced the Be Aware: PORN HARMS National Awareness Campaign, a four-week educational effort beginning on July 11, 2011.

 

“Pornography is silently and secretly destroying men, women, and children.  It is a pandemic ruining lives, marriages and families,” said Patrick Trueman, President of Morality in Media, the leading member of the War On Illegal Pornography Coalition. “Our now Pornified society has eroded the cultural norms in America.  This harm must end and that is why we are launching the Be Aware: PORN HARMS campaign,” he added.

“The pandemic of harm from pornography demonstrates a critical need for enforcement of current federal laws against illegal hardcore pornography,” said Trueman. 

“Each week of our campaign, we will focus on a specific harm of pornography: porn addiction, harms to children, increased sexual trafficking and violence against women,” said Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of Morality in Media.  “Every day we receive messages from the victims of pornography – men caught in the ravages of addiction, women and children raped, women trafficked and made to perform degrading sexual acts on tape, broken families and devastated hearts,” she added.

Hawkins said there will be over 25 events during the month, from local rallies to webinars to live online conferences.  Participating groups will provide hundreds of free subscriptions to addiction recovery services and filtering software.

Morality in Media will provide billboards, signs and web posters at no cost to all supporters.  Those participating in live online events include: Candeo, Fight The New Drug, Content Watch, Bsecure, as well as law enforcement leaders and academic scholars.
