News around the world: Porn is a public health crisis

Dear Friends & Supporters,
I am still riding the wave of optimism and motivation from the Summit last weekend. The successes that will come from the intense two days of training and networking will never be fully visible, but the moment that will stay in my mind was dinner on Friday night. At one of the tables, there were a few of the feminist atheists sitting with a Catholic Bishop, a priest and two other leaders from faith-based organizations. They were sitting together laughing and talking and most importantly, strategizing about the issue before us.
We have reignited the movement! 
With all of us working together, the status-quo is changing. And we have tools on our side that we never had before -lots of credible research and scientific facts, stories from thousands of families and individuals, wisdom of longtime activists, the vibrant energy of new leaders, and an army supporters in YOU.
Thank you for your support, faith and action.
NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
We held a press conference at the National Press Club on Thursday with a few of the speakers from the Summit. As a result, there are dozens of news articles running all over the world about the harms of pornography. UK, Ireland, Quebec, Australia, Portugal, Russia, Japan, Germany, Iceland, France, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, America are all talking about the Summit and pornography as the public health crisis that it is.Will share the longer list with you later, but here are a few:

National Center on Sexual Exploitation

Founded in 1962, National Center on Sexual Exploitation is the leading national organization opposing pornography by highlighting the links to sex trafficking, violence against women, child abuse, addiction and more. The organization changed its name from Morality In Media to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation early in 2015 to better describe the organization’s scope and mission, which is to expose the seamless connection between all forms of sexual exploitation.
