Can a City Be Free from Pornography?

Letitia Shelton

In the battle against pornography, it’s important to localize the issiue. Letitia, along with the mayor of her city have begun a campaign in Toowoomba, Australia called a City Free from Porn. What is their strategy? How do you address this porn at a local level from working with local government, to schools, to churches? This is a very practical session and will be sure to inspire you.

Founder of City Women Toowoomba, Letitia is sold out to making her city (Toowoomba, Australia) a better place for girls and women. For the last 25 years she has worked closely with teenage girls. She coordinates City Women, which is an umbrella organisation for 15 ministries that are reaching out into the city to help women and girls. After becoming aware of how pornography fuels so much of the sexual abuse and violence among women, Letitia wanted to address this issue. It’s important to work with girls who have been abused, but she wanted to get to the root of what causes so much of the problems. In 2016 Letitia launched the City Free from Porn campaign with her mayor Paul Antonio. This campaign seeks to raise awareness & education around the harms of porn, She has recently authored a book titled Disruptive Women. Letitia is passionate and will certainly stir you to take responsibility for your city and make a difference. www.citywomen.com.au
