Why Become a Defender?
We’re extremely grateful for our Defenders. The Defenders are our community of sustained monthly recurring donors. Sustained donors enable us to plan with a reliable budget, and to leverage every opportunity to fight for dignity!
We reached out to our Defenders with a simple question – “Why did you decide to become a Defender of human dignity?” One Defender responded with the following message:
“I decided to become a Defender of human dignity and fight sexual exploitation for many reasons. First of all, I have personally felt the effects of addiction to pornography. By the grace of God, and much effort, this addiction is under control. I want to save lives and families from being ruined and destroyed by this plague. If we can help prevent more people from accessing this readily available material, there will be fewer casualties to sexual addiction.
I work in law enforcement and have also witnessed the devastating effects that sexual crimes (including child pornography, rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse, sex trafficking, pandering and prostitution, etc) have on people’s lives and society as a whole. Prevention is key. It would be nice to respond to fewer allegations of sex crimes. I truly believe that if we educate society on the harms that pornography can have, we can help stop the demand for sexual exploitation material. We can prevent more people from becoming victims to sexual crimes and sex trafficking.
I am happy that there are organizations like NCOSE that fight sexual exploitation is all its forms. They understand the link between pornography addiction and sexual exploitation that others seem to ignore. I have seen real results that NCOSE’s work has helped bring about. Laws are being changed for the better. More work needs to be done. I am proud to be a part of it. Thank you!”
– A Proud Defender
Testimonies like these warm our hearts and strengthen us in our efforts. NCOSE is proud to lead the movement against sexual exploitation. As this proud Defender said, NCOSE has had “real results” as seen by our multitude of victories.
While many feel powerless against a culture awash in sexually degrading messages, we do not. NCOSE has a proven track record of changing the culture. Since 2011, NCOSE has instigated over 90 policy improvements. With more resources, NCOSE can continue its history of success.
These victories are made possible by Defender donors!
