Working to protect children and families in the Digital Age.
To help ensure a safe environment in the community both physically and digitally for our children and families in the digital age.
We accomplish this mission through various programs; Digital Safety Prevention Education, Community Protection, Youth@Risk and Crisis Intervention.
(LICCV) Long Island Citizens for Community Values 501(c)(3) classified has been committed to protecting Long Island’s Children and Families in the Digital Age for nearly 30 years, while empowering them with tools for a healthier media life.
Founded in 1993 by President & Executive Director Robert Lloyd, the organization offers solution-based tools for families to recognize digital dependency, cyberbullying, sexting, and threats of suicidal coercion. In addition, we teach families new skills to keep children safe from online predators, violence, and pornographic images.
Today, LICCV is Long Island’s sole organization providing this specific set of solutions to Children and families with 5 staff, 20 volunteers, and 4+ programs.
In 1996, LICCV was instrumental in passing the law sponsored by Sen. Owen Johnson making possessing child pornography a felony in NY State. Up until then, it was against the law to produce it or sell it but you could possess all you wanted.
In 1998, LICCV was instrumental in assisting a New York City Council led by then-Mayor Giuliani in cleaning up Times Square. Through this effort, 129 sexually oriented businesses were removed.
LICCV presents a “Youth@Risk Program” to over 2,000 students a year in Public and Christian schools alike, equipping today’s youth with the tools they need to make the right choices for themselves and avoid out-of-wedlock pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and abortion.
LICCV introduced a sexually oriented material assessment pilot program which is being implemented by the Huntington police force. Uniform patrolmen survey retail outlets that frequently carry these materials, assess the material, and oversee the removal of any materials that are in violation of the Harmful to Minors Act.
LICCV along with various Town Attorneys have been solely responsible for the removal and or blocking the opening of numerous sexually oriented businesses in both Nassau & Suffolk Counties.
LICCV in March of 2003 along with other national religious leaders influenced AT&T to get out of the porn business. Mr. Lloyd was personally able to address the CEO himself.
LICCV in June 2003 participated in passing the Video Voyeurism law which banned any and all video surveillance in dressing rooms in retail outlets, bedrooms, apartments, etc. Until that point, there was no law on the books against that.
LICCV in 2004 met with Attorney General J. Ashcroft at the Justice Department and received a commitment that his administration would enforce all federal obscenity laws and prosecute all those that violate them.
LICCV in 2007 met with Attorney General R. Gonzalez who also gave his commitment to prosecute and enforce obscenity. In addition, LICCV received the highest award presented to any organization or person from the New York State Assembly; The New York State Assembly Excelsior Award
In 2008 LICCV was devoted to strengthening its infrastructure, board development, developing new programming, focusing the vision, moving to a new location, and adding to the staff.
In 2009/10 LICCV launched a new, more aggressive fight against the ravages of pornography and the sexual culture on Long Island. We accomplish this mission through a variety of programs; Community Protection, Education and awareness, Internet Safety, Youth @ Risk, Child Safety, and Crisis Intervention
In 2010 LICCV along with the Quality of Life Task Force of the Town of Babylon and Town Supervisor Steve Bellone & Town Counsel of Huntington closed down two adult bookstores on Sunrise Hwy and two adult shops on Route 110.
In 2011 – 2014 LICCV along with the Quality of Life Task Force of the Town of Babylon and Town Supervisor Steve Bellone closed 15 prostitution rings cloaked as massage parlors or smoke shops and 3 more SOBs (sexually oriented businesses) in Babylon, housed there for nearly 40 years!
In 2014 we joined the Nassau County District Attorneys Office hosted by Hofstra University. Our workshop “How To Say No To Sex In A Sexxxy World” was widely received.
LICCV in the past 20 years has assisted hundreds of women, children, men, and families through the devastating effects of pornography and sexual violence. They have seen them restored and return to living a healthy life.
We are working diligently every day to protect all of our children and grandchildren from the sexualized culture and we will continue through every avenue opened to us, politics, schools, churches, prisons, and the law.

We deal with many relational issues such as marriage, courtship, abstinence, and addiction. In addition we assist Town Attorney’s to rewrite existing laws to prevent sexually oriented businesses from coming into our neighborhoods and help to rid our communities of already existing ones. Recently we have launched our new presentation, developed by our son Daniel, “ Are You Digitally Dependent or Socially Connected?” We reach out to towns, municipalities, church and youth organizations to equip individuals with the tools necessary to protect families in this new virtual, digital culture.
