Parents Television Council Announces New Salt Lake City Chapter Director


LOS ANGELES (April 11, 2007) – The Parents Television Council™, the nation’s most influential advocacy organization protecting children from graphic sex, violence and profanity in the media, announced Cindy Moreno as the new director of the Salt Lake City Chapter.  She brings a successful track record of activism that will aid in building the chapter.


Moreno’s commitment to children and family values has made her a leader and spokeswoman around her community.  She is president of Communities for Decency, a like-minded-organization that works on community standards and decency issues.  She is also a member of the Utah Coalition Against Pornography, Citizens Against Pornography, and Legacy Law Utah.


“It makes me angry to see our children being exposed to gruesome violence and unabashed sex.  As a parent of four, I could no longer take it,” said Moreno. “With the help of the PTC and local residents, we can stand together to fight offensive programming.”


The SLC Chapter will assist in introducing cable choice to state legislators.  Moreno has worked before with legislators on issues regarding the protection of children and the family.  She was instrumental in having the Utah governor and mayors sign a proclamation recognizing the nationwide program, White Ribbon Against Pornography.


Tim Winter, president of the PTC, said, “I’m excited that Cindy will bring new leadership and energy to the SLC Chapter.  She emanates passion for her community and a fire for protecting children.  Her experience with her state legislators and local PTA will make her a valuable leader and I can see great things coming from this chapter.”
