Top 6 Triumphs in 2016 Revealed 

 Dear Friend, 

I am delighted and humbled to share with you the many victories that Enough Is Enough®™ (EIE) has accomplished in 2016. 

Your support has helped to foster the significant successes we have made to prevent the Internet-enabled exploitation of children in the political, corporate, media and public education sectors. 

Many said we couldn't get Fortune 100 companies, starting with McDonald's and Starbucks, to filter porn and child porn on their public WiFi, but we DID! They said we couldn't get the next President of America to pledge to lead on protecting children online, but we DID! And that's just the top 2 of our 6 HUGE VICTORIES in 2016!!

Will you support our efforts going forward? EIE is 100% donor funded and you have the opportunity to tell your friends.... "Hey, I helped make that victory happen!" You can donate right here, right now!

And with that, EIE is pleased to announce its Top 6 Victories in 2016!

 

#1 The Children’s Internet Safety Presidential Pledge

In an unprecedented move during an election year, EIE's The Children’s Internet Safety Presidential Pledge was signed by Donald Trump and supported by Hillary Clinton. The Pledge called upon the candidates, if elected president, to enforce the existing federal laws and advance public policies designed to prevent the sexual exploitation of children online. This was HISTORY IN THE MAKING FOLKS! 

Next steps:  We are currently making recommendations to President-Elect Trump’s transition to implement the goals of the pledge which include a commitment to appoint an Attorney General, who will make the vigorous prosecution of the federal obscenity, child pornography, sexual predation, child trafficking laws and the Children's Internet Protection Act a top priority. 

Your financial support will fund our work with the Trump Administration and our ability to roll out the Congressional Pledge, the State Legislator’s Pledge and the State U.S. Attorney’s Pledge in 2017. 

EIE looks forward to potentially working alongside the next First Lady Melania Trump on cyberbullying prevention efforts.

#2 The National Porn Free WiFi Movement

EIE launched its “National Porn Free WiFi” campaign” in the fall of 2014, with nearly 50,000 petitions and 75 partner organizations signing our letter  encouraging McDonald’s and Starbucks to lead Corporate America in filtering porn and child porn on public WiFi. As a result, McDonald’s is now filtering WiFi in almost ALL of their 14,000 stores nationwide; Starbucks announced in July 2016 they would begin filtering their public WiFi nationally and are implementing a global safe WiFi policy.  This is just the beginning.

Next Steps: Your support with empower EIE to get other restaurants, hotels/ resorts, superstores, malls, schools, libraries, airlines, athletic arenas and other businesses to provide safe and secure WiFi for their patrons, which includes kids and teens. WiFi is the new frontier on Internet safety and once again, EIE's vision and leadership  is paving the way!!

#3 Stop Disney-Themed Pornography Campaign

In September, EIE launched the national campaign urging Disney to take legal action to stop the ongoing proliferation of Disney themed hard-core porn sites, which are an apparent violation of Disney's copyrighted brands. Both Disney characters and children who love them need to be protected from unscrupulous pornographers who depict them in obscene pictures and videos performing graphic sexual acts. The online petition campaign  already has 21,000 signatures and is growing daily!  Your support will empower EIE to turn this campaign into a 2017 victory! 

#4 Public Awareness and Education

Since 1994, EIE has been the leading voice in the mainstream media shaping  public opinion and policy on issues related to protecting children from online pornography, sexual predators and other dangers. This year, EIE President Donna Rice Hughes conducted more than 85 media interviews reaching over 50 million people globally, as many of the stories went viral. Check out our Media coverage, op-eds, and press releases and the graphic on right of the variety of media outlets featuring our efforts. 

In June 2016, EIE unveiled the redesign of its two websites, Enough.org and InternetSafety101.orgallowing for greater interactivity, easier navigation, robust social media campaigns and long-term sustainability. 

#5 The Award Winning Internet Safety 101SM Program 

went into international distribution in 2016 with a major distributor.  Expanded distribution to additional digital, video on demand, social media and e-learning platforms, public libraries and other venues worldwide makes the 101 resources readily accessible to every English and Spanish speaking parent, grandparent and teacher in worldwide. The Emmy award-winning three 1-hour 101 TV Series is now available on Vimeo and the 101 Program is on Amazon.com

#6 Project Wilberforce

The mission is to end the Internet-enabled sexual exploitation of children  and restore a culture of dignity and respect.  The Public Health Pornography Pandemic campaign, is undergirding the growing national movement to shed light on the social costs of Internet pornography as a public health pandemic. 

Since 1994, EIE has provided vision, leadership, expertise, aggregated research and resources to inform the public, media, policy makers, law enforcement and corporate leaders on the negative impact of cyberporn on  the emotional, physical and  mental health of children and youth.

The fruit of this movement is evidenced by the Utah legislature's resolution declaring pornography a public health crisis, which leads to the "hyper-sexualization of teens" and an "increase in the demand for sex trafficking, prostitution, and child pornography."  A similar resolution was recently adopted in Canada (M-47) AND the 2016 GOP Platform included language declaring Internet pornography a public health issue.

As you can see, our 2017 agenda is bold and EIE has a track record of over-delivering on time and under budget.  

But we need resources and that's where you come in.
