Screen-Free Week, Growing up in a Pornified Culture, & New Victory in the Movement!

screen free week

Join us for “SCREEN-FREE WEEK”, MAY 4-10th

Together with Power of Moms, we’re joining thousands of schools, libraries, organizations, and community groups in a coordinated effort to take a break with our kids from all recreational computer, cell phones, mp3 players, iPads, and other hand-held devices. Let’s turn OFF recreational screen time in our lives while really turning ON the world around us!

Screen-Free-Week lives can be more full of interactive fun and creative, active play and a little less infused with screen time. Screen-Free Week is brought to us by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC). TAKE THE PLEDGE TO JOIN HERE.

VICTORY: Abercombie & Fitch Changes Policies!


Recently, Abercrombie & Fitch announced that by the end of July, there will no longer be sexualized marketing used in marketing materials, including in-store photos, gift cards and shopping bags!

We have gone after Abercrombie & Fitch many times in the past and rare thrilled with this announced change to discontinue sexual exploitation as a way to make profits. This is a victory for the movement!
