“Stop doing wrong, learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.” ~Isaiah 1:17
On Father’s Day 2006, Vern Smith, husband of Shared Hope’s President and Founder, Linda Smith, created the Defenders USA. Born out of the belief that men are naturally wired to defend, this group of men takes a pledge to oppose the commercial sex industry in all its forms and defend their family and friends against it.
