How to Stop Public Porn–Abriana Chilelli

0


Jun 27, 2018

Abriana Chilelli had to drive her children past a lewd strip
club advertisement every day on their way home from school in
downtown Denver. But instead of taking a fatalistic attitude and a
detour, or worse, just accepting it, she got in touch with a city
councilman and within days, the pornographic image was gone. We
discuss her story and the lessons she learned about how we can
still accomplish positive change in our communities, and the
importance of teaching children the true meaning of their
bodies.
