Virginia Resolution Recognizing Harms of Pornography Moves Forward!

Major Update: the Virginia State House just passed the Virginia resolution recognizing the harms of pornography, similar to the one passed in Utah and South Dakota, with an overwhelming majority of 82-8. The resolution will now move on to the Virginia State Senate.

This decision by the Virginia State House also follows on the heels of the unanimous vote by the Canadian Parliament’s House of Commons to conduct a study to examine the public health effects of online pornography.

ACTION ALERT: If You Are a Resident of Virginia, Contact Your State Senator and Ask Them to Support This Resolution!

National Center on Sexual Exploitation

Founded in 1962, National Center on Sexual Exploitation is the leading national organization opposing pornography by highlighting the links to sex trafficking, violence against women, child abuse, addiction and more. The organization changed its name from Morality In Media to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation early in 2015 to better describe the organization’s scope and mission, which is to expose the seamless connection between all forms of sexual exploitation.
