North American Man/Boy Love Association

The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) is a pedophile and pederasty advocacy organization in the United States. It works to abolish age of consent laws criminalizing adult sexual involvement with minors,[1][2] and campaigns for the release of all men who have been jailed for sexual contacts with minors that did not involve coercion.[1][3] Some reports state that the group no longer has regular national meetings, and that as of the late 1990s, to avoid local police infiltration, the organization discouraged the formation of local chapters.[3][4] Around 1995, an undercover detective discovered that there were 1,100 people on the rolls.[3] As of 2005, a newspaper report stated that NAMBLA was based in New York and San Francisco.[3]

 

Goals and positions

NAMBLA’s website states that it is a political, civil rights, and educational organization whose goal is to end “the extreme oppression of men and boys in mutually consensual relationships.“[5] According to the NAMBLA, some of the organization’s primary positions are:

Supporting and promoting man/boy relationships: they hold that when consensual these relationships are not harmful or child sexual abuse.[6] One study they cite is the controversial Rind et al. paper.[7]
Age-of-consent reform: what NAMBLA describes as “empowerment of youth in all areas, not just the sexual.”[5]
