Ask Secretary Clinton to declare her opposition to sexual exploitation

Join me in asking Secretary Clinton to sign a Presidential Pledge that her commitment to protecting children from internet-enabled sexual exploitation.

Clinton’s campaign said she supported the goals of The Internet Safety Presidential Pledge but claimed that an internal policy prevents Secretary Clinton from signing the pledge. The GOP Presidential nominee, Donald Trump, signed the pledge. Will you join me in urging Secretary Clinton to sign the Pledge?

America’s children deserve to be protected from Internet-enabled sexual exploitation. On an issue this clear, Clinton should willingly and openly sign a pledge.

If both candidates were to sign this pledge, it would be the first time in history for both parties' nominees to agree, before elected, to ensure the aggressive enforcement of existing federal laws designed to prevent Internet crimes against children.

Regardless of your political affiliations, please join me in urging Secretary Clinton to declare her stance on this important issue!

The Internet has become a powerful educational and communications tool, placing vast new worlds of knowledge in the palm of our hands. Today’s youth have fully integrated the Internet into their daily lives, using technology as a pervasive platform for education, communication, interaction, exploration, and self–expression. The Internet opens its users to a world that is reflective of contemporary human life, providing access to what is good, beneficial, and enriching, but when unrestricted, it also opens doors to what is dangerous, obscene, violent and criminal. 

Children and adolescents are particularly vulnerable to the impact of this broad spectrum of dangerous content and activity. Preventing the sexual exploitation of youth online requires a shared responsibility between the public, industry and government. A growing number of government commissions, task forces, scholars, and institutions have recognized the significant risks associated with unfettered Internet access by youth, and they have called upon governments, policy makers, caregivers, industry and educators to take action. 

You can view the full Presidential Pledge and find more information about this movement at: http://enough.org/presidential_pledge. The pledge is sponsored by Enough is Enough, the leader in preventing children and families online.

Please join me in this personal effort to do everything possible to protect our children.

Kind regards,
Donna Rice Hughes

Stop internet pornography and sexual exploitation

Dear Secretary Clinton,

I strongly urge you to reconsider signing The Children's Internet Safety Presidential Pledge. Donald Trump already signed the pledge, and we ask you to do the same. America's children deserve to be protected from Internet-enabled sexual exploitation.

Your campaign told Enough Is Enough, the creator of the Pledge, that you supported the goals of the Pledge, but declined to sign because of your campaign's policy of not signing pledges. Please reconsider, for the sake of the children!

Please commit to enforcing the existing federal laws against sexual exploitation and internet pornography.

This is the text of the pledge:

THE CHILDREN'S INTERNET SAFETY PRESIDENTIAL PLEDGE

If elected President of the United State of America, I promise to:

1) Uphold the rule of law by aggressively enforce existing federal laws to prevent the sexual exploitation of children online, including the federal obscenity laws, child pornography laws, sexual predation laws and the sex trafficking laws by:

  • Appointing an Attorney General who will make the prosecution of such laws a top priority in my administration and,
  • Providing the intelligence community and law enforcement with the resources and tools needed to investigate and prosecute Internet crimes involving the sexual exploitation of children.

2) Aggressively enforce the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requiring schools and public libraries using government eRate monies to filter child pornography and pornography by requiring effective oversight by the Federal Communications Commission;

3) Protect and defend the innocence of America's children by advancing public policies that prevent the sexual exploitation of children in a manner that is consistent with the government's compelling interest in protecting its most vulnerable citizens, within the limits set forth by the First Amendment.

4) Give serious consideration to appointing a Presidential Commission to examine the harmful public health impact of Internet pornography on youth, families and the American culture and the prevention of the sexual exploitation of children in the digital age.

5) Establish public-private partnerships with Corporate America to step up voluntary efforts to reduce the threat of the Internet-enabled sexual exploitation of children by the implementation of updated corporate policies and viable technology tools and solutions.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
