The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will have its annual meeting in Baltimore November 12-15, 2018. The Silence Stops Now Coalition is committed to ending the culture of clerical silence that has enabled the sexual predation and destruction of lives for decades. To this end, we will be organizing the Silence Stops Now rally in Baltimore to demand an end to the silence, to insist on the resignation of those responsible, the prosecution of any criminal activity, and an independent investigation of the leadership of the Catholic Church in the United States.

Federal law prohibits distribution of obscene adult pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, in retail shops, through the mail, and by common carrier. The U.S. Supreme Court has also repeatedly upheld obscenity laws against First Amendment challenges, explaining that obscenity is not protected speech.

Even so, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has not enforced existing federal obscenity laws since 2008. Sign a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking him to enforce federal obscenity law.
