Our New Logo

As you likely know, earlier this year we changed our name from Morality In Media to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation to better describe our organization’s scope and mission (which remains the same as it has always been).

Now, we are excited to unveil our new logo.


The logo for the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) does well to depict our mission to defend human dignity and oppose sexual exploitation by portraying both strength and hope. The column that runs through the center of the logo represents the historic foundation upon which NCOSE was built.

Established as Morality in Media over 50 years ago, NCOSE has grown to become the leading national organization opposing pornography and exposing the seamless connections between all forms of sexual exploitation. Juxtaposed with this column is a lone individual, who having advanced several steps, looks upward to envision a world where all are free from exploitation. In addition, the color chosen for the NCOSE logo connects the organization to its history. By choosing blue – the color of truth – NCOSE preserves the color that defined Morality in Media and declares our ongoing efforts to educate and advocate in support of individuals, families, and society.

We hope that you like our logo as much as we do!
