" It is only through the dedicated efforts of staff and supporters that ASACP accomplishes its goals and furthers its efforts. It has taken us a long time to get this far, but there is still much to do. "

The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is proud to reveal several of the details surrounding its ongoing initiatives, focusing on its efforts to provide parents, educators, policy makers and other stakeholders with relevant tools and information for online child protection.

In an effort to educate the public and inform its supporters within the digital media industry, ASACP has prepared the following data to illustrate the effectiveness of its actions, as well as the overall interest expressed in its mission by the Internet community at large.

As a snapshot of the association’s efficacy and reach, during the month of May 2012, visitors to the ASACP.org website downloaded nearly 8,700 information-packed PDF files, including 6,491 copies of the association’s CP Hotline White Paper, along with 922 copies of its listing of unacceptable terms. ASACP’s guide to Dating Site Best Practices received 539 downloads; and visitors obtained 199 copies of the User Generated Content Site Best Practices. ASACP’s Membership Kit saw 548 downloads by interested parties during the month.

Parents also made good use of ASACP-provided resources, viewing the association’s listing of Parental Guidelines 32,449 times, while the Child Protection Resources received 19,827 views in May. The “Links for Parents” page on the Restricted To Adults (RTA) sister site, had 21,285 views during the same period.

Information about the RTA labeling program was also popular, with 3,807 downloads of the RTA Website Labeling Progress Report, and 1,420 downloads of “How to Label Your Site.”

These latest numbers highlight the association’s continued relevance and the need for it to continue its valuable task. Whether on the fixed or mobile Internet, at-risk youth and their parents need a helping hand and entertainment media business owners need expert guidance.

It is this burden that ASACP bears but it can only be done with the help of the businesses and individuals most affected by these concerns.

ASACP relies on the generous financial, material and technical support of its advisory council, sponsors, members, and contributors, some of whom provide vital services and resources that the association requires in order to fulfill its mission.

Thanks to the continued efforts of Cyber Stampede’s Rodney Thompson, winner of the 2012 ASACP Service Recognition Award (sponsored by Manwin), traffic to the association’s website has steadily risen, with more than 69,000 pages of our main website now indexed in Google. This exposure helps ASACP to reach a wider audience, both in the U.S. and abroad, furthering its mission to keep children around the world out of and away from adult material.

Many companies have and continue to seek unique ways to support ASACP, such as organizations that provide exposure for ASACP and RTA at industry trade events and other functions, helping the association leverage its limited travel and operational budget.

It is only through the dedicated efforts of staff and supporters that ASACP accomplishes its goals and furthers its efforts. It has taken us a long time to get this far, but there is still much to do.

For more information on how you or your company can become a part of the ASACP family and make a difference in the fight to protect children online, please contact tim@asacp.org.
