Houston Leaders Address Pornography Concerns

Houston Leaders Meeting To Address Harms of Pornography

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 21, 2013) – Business and community leaders, child advocates, educators, healthcare professionals, law enforcement and pastors from the Greater Houston Area are meeting Tuesday, May 21 to start the conversation on what can be done to curb the pandemic of harm from pornography in their community. Patrick A. Trueman, President and CEO of Morality In Media, the leading national organization opposing pornography, will address the group. The event will be a luncheon at Tony Mandola’s, hosted by Michael and Rhonda Graff.

Trueman will speak about the links between pornography and sexual exploitation, specifically sexual trafficking and child sexual abuse, and why citizens must begin to fight back against pornography distributors.

“America is suffering an untreated pandemic of harm from pornography,” Trueman, said. “Children and adults are developing life-long addictions; pornography is creating demand for prostituted women and sexually trafficked women and girls; adult pornography is also creating an increased demand for child pornography; and pornography is leading to sexual violence.”

Also speaking at the event is Clay Olsen of Fight the New Drug, who has educated thousands of high school students on the harm from pornography.
