The Dignity Defense Alliance: How to Make a Difference Every Month

Taking the $10 billion per year pornography industry head on isn’t easy.  The good news is, you and I ARE making a difference. We’ve proven that.

One way we’ve made a difference is through our aggressive Dirty Dozen List. Through this project, we’ve convinced companies like Google, YouTube, HiltonFund_DDA_graphic5FINAL_6-20-16 Hotels Worldwide, Facebook, Verizon, Hyatt Hotels and more to make positive changes to reduce easy access to sexually explicit material. Starwood Hotels—one of our 2016 Dirty Dozen List targets—announced they are removing pornography from the pay-per-view choices at all of their Westin, Sheraton, Four Points, Aloft, and Le Meridien hotel chains, among others. And Overstock.com has removed all hardcore pornographic magazines and videos from its virtual shelves.

We still have so much more to do to clean up America and I am confident that we can. New, impassioned, supporters are joining our cause every day.

You can invest in the effort to save marriages, protect children’s innocence, to shield teenage girls from sexual objectification and degradation, and so much more. Join the Dignity Defense Alliance to automatically give any amount—whether it’s $20, $50, $100, or more—on a reoccurring basis.
