26th Annual White Ribbon Against Pornography Week

Written by Hysen Sisco, MIM Intern

This week marks Morality in Media’s 26th Annual White Ribbon Against Pornography Week from October 27-November 4. The purpose of WRAP Week is to educate about the harms of pornography. People all around the country will be participating in a variety of ways to include handing out or wearing white ribbons to bring awareness. Some will hold demonstrations or community events while others will hold counseling groups for porn addicts or go about their day wearing ribbons, responding to inquiries from others.

WRAP Week started in 1987 in Butler, PA by Norma Norris. After hearing a sermon warning against the rise of pornography in the community and its harms, Norris took to the streets to increase awareness. In order to allow participation by the maximum amount of people, a simple white ribbon, to symbolize purity of mind and heart, was used.

Throughout the week, Morality in Media will highlight a specific harm each day and provide information and resources. Here are some handouts for each topic (in PDF format):


Harms to Children

Links to Sex Trafficking

Marriage and Family

Links between Child Porn and Pornography
