President and Founder of PHE, Inc Phil Harvey Receives AASECT Humanitarian Award
Hillsborough, NC July 6th, 2006 Phil Harvey, President and Founder of PHE, Inc., the parent company of Adam & Eve, was honored on Friday, June 30, 2006, with the AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists) Humanitarian Award.
Held in St. Louis, Missouri, at the 38th annual AASECT Conference, this four-day workshop culminated with an Awards Luncheon attended by the most respected names in sexual education.
Lloyd Sinclair, a long-time AASECT member (and Adam & Eve colleague), presented the AASECT Humanitarian Award to Harvey for his outstanding contributions to the promotion of civil, sexual and human rights.
During the awards ceremony, Sinclair emphasized the crucial turning points in Harvey’s career: from Harvey’s initial selling of condoms by mail in the U.S. in 1970, when it was still illegal to do so… to fighting for First Amendment Rights in Adam & Eve’s battle with the Justice Department (1986-1992), including a lawsuit which eliminated the “multiple, simultaneous” government prosecution strategy that annihilated a dozen other adult business… to choosing to institute a screening process for all Adam & Eve videos/dvds, ensuring that the company provides only “sex positive” material… to Harvey’s generous contributions to programs that promote reproductive health, family planning and AIDS prevention in some of the world’s poorest countries.
“I am proud to be recognized by such a fine and compassionate group of professionals,” says Harvey. “It is an honor to be a part of your organization.”
