Parents Television Council Announces Louisville Chapter

Author Charters New Chapter

 

LOS ANGELES (March 29, 2010) — The Parents Television Council™ (PTC), the nation’s most influential advocacy organization protecting children from graphic sex, violence and profanity in the media, announced Caroline Fyffe as the director of the Louisville Chapter.

 

A mother of two, Caroline is the former director of the PTC’s Central Valley Chapter in California.  In her short time leading that chapter, she spoke out at the Apple corporate shareholder meeting about the company’s sponsorship of programs like “Two and a Half Men” and to the Disney Board of Directors about the mature programming that regularly appears on ABC Family channel.  Fyffe moved to Kentucky last year and plans to apply what she learned in California, about organizing people and speaking out, to hit the ground running in the Louisville area.


Fyffe recently published her first novel, Where the Wind Blows, with her second, Montana Dawn, to be released in August 2010.  Caroline also runs her own photography business, Caroline Fyffe Equine Photography.  She has been actively involved with her parish for years and has volunteered her time in prison ministry services.

 

The Louisville Chapter will be a voice for the community in defense of the innocence of childhood. The chapter will take on national and local initiatives while working toward greater awareness of the amount of adult content in the media consumed by our youth.  Once parents are armed with the latest news and research, the chapter will be the focal point for action.  Louisville chapter members will reach out to media producers and the advertisers that pay for their programs to discuss their responsibilities as corporate citizens and, ultimately, to promote a positive change in local television content. 

 

Fyffe sees a chance to change the landscape.  “We don’t have to just accept things the way they are. In fact, it is our responsibility to speak out against those who care not for the innocence of our children or of the long-term damage to our community their actions create,” she said.


In California, Caroline’s efforts brought about positive, tangible results for her community, and she garnered the attention of some of the largest companies in the world.  When Caroline sets her mind to achieving something, she finds a way to achieve it.  I am delighted to announce her leadership with our newest chapter in Louisville,” said PTC President Tim Winter.
