About

The Dignity Defense Alert is a monthly campaign to recognize the people, companies, and nonprofits, who are taking action to defend human dignity from any form of sexual abuse or exploitation.

In today’s world, it is easy to focus on those who are doing wrong – those who are abusing, or facilitating exploitation, or failing to prevent harm. There is value in raising awareness and taking action on those issues. But there is also value in acknowledging the countless individuals and entities who are doing the right thing. While not every entity we recognize is perfect in this regard, we want to thank those that are taking important steps forward. 

We hope that you will help share these encouraging alerts with friends and family online!
