Culture Reframed: Solving the Public Health Crisis of the Digital Age
Culture Reframed | Winter 2016 Newsletter

Happy Holidays! We are wrapping up a productive year, and while there is so much to report, we’ve selected a few highlights, initiatives, and resources to share with you before heading into 2017. Cultured Reframed (CR) is the first health promotion nonprofit organization to recognize and address pornography as the public health crisis of the digital age, and we could not do it without the generous support of our donors. Thank you to those who have given to us in the past and to those who are considering giving to us as we continue leading the charge to reclaim healthy sexuality and respect in all relationships.

In health and happiness,
Your friends & advocates at Culture Reframed

As the evidence on the harms of pornography piles up, it has become clear that we can no longer sit back and allow the porn industry to hijack the sexual and emotional well-being of our culture."
