How One Activist is Educating Her Community

One of our supporters did something amazing! Chrissy, a mother to young children and activist against sexual exploitation, wanted to raise awareness about the harms of pornography in her community. So, she took action.

She coordinated an effort to post billboards in Pottstown, PA. With the support of various community members, they were able to successfully purchase multiple billboards highlighting the harms of pornography. Check it out!

NCOSE had the fantastic opportunity to interview Chrissy about her efforts. You can watch the full interview below. Also, be sure to check out her website PassOnTheTruth.com

The most amazing part? She said people across the country can easily do the same! Are you ready to post billboards in your community? Visit our City Blitz campaign page to get start making a difference in your hometown.

 

Ben Miller

Digital Strategies Coordinator

Ben joined the National Center on Sexual Exploitation as Digital Strategies Coordinator in July of 2018. As Digital Strategies Coordinator, Ben raises awareness for issues of sexual exploitation through digital media, email marketing, and website development. He works to create a community of activists who are enthusiastic about combating sexual exploitation and changing culture.

Ben earned his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. He graduated with Honors in the Liberal Arts and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. During his college career, Ben spent a semester studying in Washington, D.C. and interned for a member of Congress. On campus, he actively sought to change Greek culture, especially with respect to sexual exploitation, through his membership in Phi Kappa Theta fraternity. Ben also supported his peers who were afflicted by the harms of pornography through a weekly men’s purity group.

Ben’s deep commitment to fighting sexual exploitation was ignited in part by the work done by NCOSE. While writing a research literature review for a public policy class in college, he came across Porn Harms Research and the initiatives being carried out by NCOSE. Ben, a strong anti-pornography activist at the time, began to learn more about the connections between all forms of exploitation and how prominent these issues are in today’s society. He devoted himself to raising awareness about the web of sexual exploitation and is deeply grateful for the work NCOSE has done on these issues. Ben is excited to be a part of the team at the National Center on Sexual Exploitation and to contribute to this important cause.
