NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A billboard in downtown Nashville has many people talking. It's only three words, but the message aims to make a strong point meant to cut down on pornography and sex trafficking.

The sign, which reads 'She's somebody's daughter,' stands above the Hustler store on Church Street.

Nashville songwriter Steve Siler came up with the campaign after he realized several of his friends were addicted to Internet porn and thought it was time for a conversation on the values of our community.

"'Somebody's daughter' is basically our way of asking if pornography would be OK if it were your wife or your sister or your daughter," Siler said. "I think it will make them question and then ask, and sometimes information goes a long way."

Thousands of cars pass through the area each day, right past the billboard.

"The sign doesn't really tell me it's related to the Hustler store or pornography. If it had something on there just against pornography, but for the people who do get it and understand it, it's pretty strong," said driver Eddie Green.

The billboard's three-word message translates to a website that breaks down the role of pornography in driving the demand for sex trafficking and violence against women. And more billboards like this one are planned for Nashville and Oklahoma.

"You know, prohibition didn't work. The war on drugs isn't working. The war on poverty isn't working. A war on pornography is senseless. It's not going to work. I think the answer is to awaken the hearts of people to what they really care about," Siler said.
