LOS ANGELES — Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) CEO Joan Irvine has received a Certificate of Congressional Commendation from Congresswoman Jane Harman.

The certificate commends Irvine for her "outstanding dedication" to ASACP.

Irvine has served as CEO for ASACP since 2002. With a background in e-commerce, business technology and association management, Irvine has been the driving force behind ASACP's ability to expand its efforts towards protecting children from viewing age-inappropriate content with the RTA "Restricted to Adults" website label.

ASACP launched RTA in November, 2006, as a free, easy to use, and internationally recognized label that designates content for adults only. It now boasts more than five million link-ins and a billion hits to RTA labeled pages daily.

"While it is truly an honor to be singled out for such a prestigious award, I share it with ASACP's sponsors and supporters who are the real driving force behind ASACP," Irvine said. "August 1 will mark my six-year anniversary with ASACP and I am grateful to Founder Alec Helmy for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the incredible work the adult industry does in order to protect children."

Founded in 1996, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating child pornography from the Internet. ASACP battles child pornography through its CP reporting hotline, and by organizing the efforts of the online adult industry to combat the heinous crime of child sexual abuse. ASACP also works to help parents prevent children from viewing age-inappropriate material online.
