War on Illegal Pornography mobilizes supporters for Call U.S. Attorney General Project

NEWS RELEASE from MORALITY IN MEDIA, Inc.

Washington, DC (May 2, 2011)– Morality in Media announced today the mobilization of its War on Illegal Pornography coalition in a three-day effort to flood the U. S. Attorney General with calls asking that he enforce existing U.S. obscenity laws.  The call days, May 2, 3, and 4, coincide with Attorney General Holder’s appearance before the U. S. Senate and House Judiciary Committees for oversight hearings on his management of the Department of Justice. He will face questions from Congress regarding his lack of enforcement of adult pornography laws.

“The attorney general needs to hear from the American public too,” said Patrick Truman, President and CEO of Morality in Media, “we must act as one.”  Trueman said he expects thousands will call the U. S. Department of Justice during the three-day call-in.  MIM set up a toll-free number to use anywhere in the U.S. for calls, 1-877-639-1977.

More than 100 Members of Congress signed a letter in early April addressed to the U.S. Attorney General urging that the Department of Justice vigorously prosecute major producers and distributors of illegal adult pornography. “Porn harms people. Porn harms families. Porn harms communities,” said Trueman. “We would simply like to see existing laws enforced.”
