Anti-pornography effort begins in Tier

The one-week White Ribbon Against Pornography Campaign took place this past week.

This national campaign is held annually during the last week of October. WRAP supporters are asked to wear white ribbons to show their opposition to the proliferation of pornography.

The effort is sponsored by Morality In Media, a New York City-based interfaith watchdog group. Locally, WRAP is promoted by Corning’s Court of St. Joseph No. 139 of the Catholic Daughters of America. Court members made ribbons that were recently distributed to Southern Tier parishes.

“The white ribbons may be worn throughout the year as a reminder that individuals are concerned about the damage pornography — especially Internet pornography — does to families,” according to Mary Smith, a White Ribbon Campaign volunteer.
