April 29

Dear Friends,

Along with our allies at California Family Council and Exodus Cry, we have an urgent request for your help.

On Tuesday, the California Assembly Judiciary Committee will consider Assembly Bill (A.B.) 3080 in a hearing. A.B. 3080 would protect children from exposure to pornography by requiring any website publishing pornography to conduct industry standard age verification of its users, while maintaining user privacy.

We need your quick action today to encourage them to pass this important legislation.

Studies show that by the age of 17, 75% of children have been exposed to pornography. They also show that the average age children first view pornography is between 7 and 13 years old, and most of those exposures happen accidentally. Even more concerning, research proves that pornography is as harmful to your brain as a hard drug. Our children are being exposed to material that is harming them the way a hard drug would, and they’re stumbling upon it by accident. A.B. 3080 would put a stop to it while ensuring all user data remains protected.

Parents are the first guardians of their child’s innocence. Ensuring kids are protected from early exposure to pornography is a critical step to making sure parents are the ones providing their kids with age-appropriate sexual education when they know it is right.

We need you to contact members of the Judiciary Committee and urge them to vote “Aye” on A.B. 3080. Contacting every member of the Judiciary Committee is easy in our Action Center – just click the button below to get started.

Along with our allies at California Family Council, who have worked tirelessly to get this bill passed, we urge you to partner with us to protect kids from early exposure to pornography. Send a message to the Judiciary Committee NOW and urge them to protect California children!

For our kids,Joseph Kohm
