Making a special pledge for children

This week saw the launch of eChildhood, an organisation dedicated to ending the harm done to children and young people by exposure to pornography.

Families Australia stands resolutely in support of this important work. It further builds momentum in the direction of making Australia a country where all children grow up safe and well.

eChildhood’s mission is to mobilise responses that reduce the harmful effects of pornography on children and young people through legislation and policy, digital solutions, and education.

Importantly, eChildhood asks us all to pledge that we stand for…

  • A world where kids can grow up without being harmed by accessing graphic, violent online pornography
  • Prevention of children’s access to pornography through digital child protection buffers
  • Updated legislation and education to address pornography as a public health crisis that increases children and young people’s vulnerabilities to sexual harms

I strongly commend decision-makers and the broader community to support this vitally important work. Please take time to look at
