A surprising number of schools and public libraries do not have pornography filtering software and a much larger number employ ineffective filtering software that children are bypassing to gain access to pornography. This is a national outrage.
Our Safe Schools, Safe Libraries Project is a grassroots campaign designed to empower parents throughout the country with the tools needed to identify the local schools and public libraries where children are at risk.
The project is vitally necessary. News reports of children gaining access to porn in schools and public libraries are a regular occurrence. The project has the additional benefit of developing grassroots anti-pornography leaders for the future.
We call on concerned parents and citizens everywhere to join this effort and be a voice asking for safer schools and libraries! Download the “Getting Started” packet that explains, from start to finish, how you can get effective filtering in their schools and libraries. Several communities have succeeded with this project!
We have also prepared model state legislation that mandates effective filtering in schools and libraries, as well as model library policies to keep pornography off computers.
