Demand Abolition is committed to eradicating the illegal commercial sex industry in the US—and, by extension, the world—by combating the demand for purchased sex. We are catalyzing social change to reflect the dignity of all people, insisting that an inherent human right is that no person can be bought or sold. Human trafficking/prostitution continues to flourish, degrading those being prostituted (usually women and children) as well as the men who are buying them.
Recognizing that it takes sustained efforts and significant collaboration to establish lasting change, we’re spearheading a multi-year, multi-stakeholder national strategy. Working closely with an active network of criminal justice professionals, survivors, practitioners, researchers, policymakers, corporate leaders, philanthropists, and media representatives we’re aiming to serve as the nexus of information on policies and practices. The program is identifying and advocating for demand-reduction interventions that are respectful, pragmatic, sustainable, and effective.
