BIG WIN: California Assembly Votes to Protect Children from Pornography!

May 31

Dear Friend,

The social conservative movement has achieved a monumental victory. A few weeks ago, the California Assembly considered Assembly Bill (A.B.) 3080, a bill that would protect children from the harms of online pornography through age verification requirements. The Assembly took a floor vote and passed the bill with a vote of 63 in favor and ZERO votes against!

We wrote to you a few weeks ago that when you think of social conservatism, you likely wouldn’t think of California. But we here at FPA are definitively changing that. This momentous passage shows that social conservative values can overcome all the partisan forces in American politics. FPA is leading the way in this effort because, in the end, protecting children really ought to be a bipartisan value!

A.B. 3080 now moves to the California State Senate, where it will likely be taken up by the Judiciary Committee. Please continue to pray for the success of this bill and ultimately for the safety of California children. 17 states have already protected their children from pornography through similar bills, and we’re working hard to make California the next one!


We want to thank you because YOUR support makes this success possible! You enabled FPA to organize a Coalition of allied organizations, legislators, and expert witnesses all committed to working together to get bills like A.B. 3080 passed. And your support enabled me, representing FPA, to serve as one of two lead witnesses in the Assembly committee hearings for A.B. 3080.

We also want to thank our friends at California Family Council and Exodus Cry for facilitating this team effort on the ground. Without them, this bill would never have been considered.

If you haven’t partnered with us yet, please consider it with this exciting news in mind. Your support is enabling what was once thought of as impossible victories for family values.

Thank you for your support and prayers!

For our kids,Joseph Kohm
