Working to rid this city of “indecent” motion pictures, Washington Jewry is cooperating in a campaign with Catholics and Protestants. This cooperation was pledged by the Jewish Community Center and the Council of Jewish Welfare.

The movement was initiated by the Sodality Union, a Catholic organization. Other organizations participating are the Washington Federation of Churches, the Parent-Teacher Association and the Committee on Civic Affairs.
