“We are so pleased that Catalina Cruz approached ASACP and volunteered to create this PSA in order to help us get out the message that parents need to be involved in protecting their children online,” ASACP CEO Joan Irvine said. “ASACP relies on the initiative of volunteers in order to carry out our mission to protect children online. Cruz not only donated her time and resources to create this PSA, she contributed financially by becoming an ASACP approved member.”
The new PSA, which can be seen on YouTube, features Cruz encouraging parents to use parental filtering software in order to protect children from viewing age-inappropriate content.
Cruz oversaw production of the video and recruited veteran industry photographer Dean Capture to edit the video.
“Out of all the things I've been involved with on the Internet over the years, being a part of the RTA ‘Restricted To Adults’ website label public service announcement campaign is the most important to me," Cruz said.
"My fan base has always been solely on the Internet and I have always felt strongly about protecting children online. Since many of us are parents in the adult industry — in front of the camera or behind — we believe it’s important to give parents resources to block adult content. I am honored to have done a public service announcement for ASACP. I hope I can generate awareness about the RTA label and that others will help get the word out as well."
The video is the fourth in an ongoing series of PSAs produced by ASACP featuring adult performers. Previous PSAs featured Stormy Daniels, Sunny Leone, Tera Patrick and Evan Seinfeld.
The RTA label was developed to be an easy to use and internationally recognized label that designates content for adults only. The RTA label is a unique string of meta data which can easily be inserted into the computer code of any website. Parental filtering software recognizes the tag and prevents children from viewing age-inappropriate material. The RTA label is free. ASACP launched RTA in November 2006 and it now has over four million page link-ins.

Founded in 1996, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection is a nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating child pornography from the Internet. ASACP also works to help parents prevent children from viewing age-inappropriate material online.
