Commercial Sexual Exploitation is driven by
Demand From Sex Buyers
The demand for commercial sex is an incentive for traffickers to exploit vulnerable people. Both buyers and traffickers should be held to a high standard of accountability for perpetuating and benefiting off of the exploitation of others.
Trafficking and sex buying are also detrimental to people who engage in these behaviors. A holistic strategy should include education and resources focused on behavior change to call people in to be a solution to this problem.
Large entities - corporations and governments - also benefit from the proliferation of the sex trade and often work to perpetuate it.
Survivors deserve access to justice.
