Siler said the initiative's premise is nonjudgmental and simply seeks to make people think about the people depicted in pornographic images as real, with lives and families of their own.
“We are just asking people to look at this issue through the lens of the women they care about,” he said.
“This is about awakening hearts because we believe good people everywhere love their families and they want what's best for their sons and daughters. Nobody would want their daughter hanging on someone's garage (on a poster or calendar) being objectified.”
Stauffer, who lives in Elizabethtown, Penn., agreed.
She said people will get an opportunity to literally shine a light on the issue during the event at Wheeler Park. She said people will be given flashlights to shine at dusk and encouraged to think of someone they love — male or female — whom they wish to take a stand for in the fight against pornography, sex trafficking and the over-sexualization of women in media and culture.
“The goal is not just to shine light in darkness but to encourage everyone to hold their daughters up for who they are, not how they look,” she said.
