Technology has made a seemingly endless selection of images available at the touch of a button or swipe of the face of a phone, regardless of the age of the viewer or ethical appropriateness to the viewer. According to a study: "Exposure to Internet Pornography among Children and Adolescents: A National Survey", CyberPsychology and Behavior, suggests that up to 90% or more youth between 12 and 18 years have access to the Internet. Concern has been raised that this increased accessibility may lead to a rise in pornography seeking among children and adolescents, with potentially serious ramifications for child and adolescent sexual development. This ubiquity seems to have been taken advantage of in the production and distribution of pornography. Interested in countering that effect, Safeguard Alliance is a volunteer community organization made up of interested citizens dedicated to presenting various topics of concern to the community. Presenting their first public event, as a new organization, they will be featuring an adult only program, "Protecting Kids from Pornography, A Parent's Guide".
