White Ribbon Against Pornography Week

White Ribbon Against Pornography Week

October 25 through November 1, 2009

Pornography has become increasingly acceptable, accessible and freely available. It is one of the biggest threats to our children's online safety. Today, any computer literate child can view, either intentionally or accidentally, sexually explicit pornography online--from adult pornography (like the kind that appears in Playboy) to prosecutable material depicting graphic sex acts, love sex shows, orgies, bestiality and violence.

Pornography has been implicated in an increase in teen promiscuity, sexually transmitted diseases, divorce, child sexual abuse, rape, human sex trafficking, and a decrease in worker productivity.

Every week in October, Enough Is Enough® joins moms, dads, grandparents, educators and other national organizations to observe White Ribbon Against Pornography week. This is an opportunity for people to wear white ribbons to inform public officials and other leaders about the harms of pornography.

The 22nd annual WRAP week runs Sunday, October 25 through Sunday, November 1st. For more information about how to get involved, see www.moralityinthemedia.com.
