Nation Celebrates 27th Annual White Ribbon Against Pornography Week

Harms of pornography highlighted across the U.S.

Washington, DC – This week is the 27th Annual National White Ribbon Against Pornography (WRAP) Week from October 26-November 1, 2014. WRAP Week events will be hosted by individuals and organizations around the country to raise awareness of the many varied harms of pornography. Morality in Media (MIM) will host daily online events presenting leaders from the movement to end sexual exploitation.

MIM’s online events include testimony from a sex trafficking survivor, webinars on Internet safety for families and porn addiction, information for parents on how they can address the issue of pornography with their children and many more. These events are available to the public for free both during the live broadcasts and as videos.

“America is suffering an untreated pandemic of harm from pornography,” said Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of MIM. “It is destroying marriages and families and is the main contributor to the sexual exploitation of women and children. Pornography is also the gateway to the sex industry.  The harm of pornography now touches every American family and Morality in Media is determined that this harm must end,” she said.

As always, MIM’s website features resources and groups to help individuals and families overcome these harms and addiction. Events can be seen at www.PornHarms.com/wrap.

Founded in 1962, Morality in Media, Inc. is the leading national non-profit organization dedicated to opposing pornography through education about its harms by highlighting the links to sex trafficking, violence against women, child abuse and obsessive use of porn.
