Former Addict to Porn, Now Turned Fighter of Porn, Will Speak at Abstinence Conference

The Abstinence Clearinghouse is excited to announce former addict to pornography, now turned fighter of porn, Phil Burress and his wife of Citizens For Community Values (CCV) as featured speakers at the 2008 Abstinence Clearinghouse Conference in Orlando, FL.

Phil and Vickie will be presenting during a general breakout and youth breakout session addressing “How Pornography Affects the Youth We Serve.” Phil and Vickie Burress are recognized leaders in the pro-family arena. Together, Phil and Vickie have presented seminars across the country to assist communities in grassroots efforts to stop the harmful effects of pornography, sexually oriented businesses, and material harmful to children.

The effects of pornography are important for educators and programs to understand because they are what abstinence educators come face to face with everyday in the classroom.

These sessions will focus on helping educators and youth understand these harmful effects but also how to identify individuals who are struggling; tips on finding them help; tips on helping young people identify and avoid these harmful images; and information on how to stand up against the porn industry in your own area.
