LOS ANGELES, CA (January 4,
2007) — The Parents Television Council, the nation's most
influential advocacy organization protecting children from
graphic sex, violence and profanity in the media, announced
Crystal Madison as the Director of the North Jersey Chapter. New
Jersey is the twenty-sixth state to join the national chapter
Madison is a devoted mother and
community leader. She has worked at the Children's Center for
Therapy and Learning teaching Special Education classes and
volunteered her time with the Special Olympics and the Newark
Community Cares Organization. Madison said, "I have witnessed
first hand the huge impact television has on children and I want
to devote more time and effort to educate families and the
general public about how to affect change."
The New Jersey chapter will be
a voice for consumers who are fighting for cable choice and
parents who want some family friendly entertainment options.
Madison and her chapter will educate and mobilize the community
to initiate positive change in the quality of entertainment by
holding advertisers accountable when they fund programming rife
with sexual and violent images.
"I am not anti-TV, not by any
means, but when I do watch television I am becoming more and
more disheartened," said Madison. "There is very little left on
the airwaves that doesn't involve graphic violence, twisted
sexual situations, or hopelessly dysfunctional families touted
Tim Winter, Executive Director
of the PTC said, "Our Chapter Directors are community leaders
that inspire change. Crystal is the perfect example; she
embodies the spirit of the PTC and the passion to improving the
quality of entertainment for our children. We are proud to have
her on our team."
