WRAP Week has begun

   The local Catholic Daughters of the Americas handed out white ribbons this past weekend to encourage people to take an active stand against pornography. The National White Ribbon Against Pornography (WRAP) Week brings together hundreds of national, state and local groups, along with concerned citizens in a massive effort to educate the public on the harms from pornography and the many resources available to aid those affected.

  WRAP Week has been around since 1987. The National Center on Sexual Exploitation, formerly Morality in Media, has a website with much information. endsexualexploitation.org/wrap will provide much information on how to answer common pro-porn arguments.

   The average age that children are first exposed to pornography is eleven years old and some experts are now saying that could be as young as eight or nine. EducateEmpowerKids has some great resources to help you talk to children in age-appropriate manner about these issues.
