Women make an effort to raise awareness about pornography and its corrupting effects on society.

Nanaimo’s St. Peter’s Parish Catholic Women’s League is making an effort to raise awareness about pornography and its corrupting effects on society.

The league took part in  the White Ribbons Against Pornography campaign, calling for action in the fight for wholesome family values, and an opportunity to rally for safe communities and a strong country.

Every year St. Peter’s Parish Catholic Women’s League of Nanaimo joins 96,000 CWL members across Canada to collect signatures on white ribbons that read Save Our Children From Sexual Predators.

The signed Nanaimo ribbons were presented to Jean Crowder, Nanaimo-Cowichan MP, earlier this month.

Agnes Geiger, St. Peter’s Parish CWL resolution chairwoman, said the idea is to get MPs across the country talking about the concerns of the people.

“There are 96,000 CWL members across Canada saying ‘this is a problem, we need to have this addressed’,” she said. “We need to have stricter laws to protect our children from sexual predators.”

Canadians Addressing Sexual Exploitation brought the ribbon campaign to Canada from the U.S. in 1988 to raise public awareness of the degrading influence of pornography upon society.
