    Profile of a Sex Buyer

    Who is Buying Sex?
    Who buys sex? The answer to this question is not easy to find due to the stigmas and laws that surround it. More often than not, the stigma is directed toward the trafficked person and not the buyer. We live in a culture that supports exploitation in many ways and also in one that shames the survivor through hurtful language. But we don’t have to continue to support this culture and we can change the conversation. Through exploring what data is available and through the stories of survivors, a clearer picture is painted of who is buying and what that means for society.

    Survivor Story Three: Damita

    Survivor Story Three: Damita

    Throughout the month of January, to recognize Human Trafficking Awareness Month, we have shared the stories of survivors of sex trafficking. Jenny, Laurie, and now Damita, were brave enough to tell us what the it was like before, during, and after being in the life. Each survivor finds their own path to breaking free, each survivor experiences their own setbacks and challenges. But meeting Damita today, you would not know about her struggles by speaking with her. Her confidence and determination are clear and it’s hard to imagine a time where she wasn’t exactly who she is today. We thank all of the survivors for sharing their stories with us and we challenge you to remember them throughout the year and not only during a specific month or on a particular day. Take a stand against sex trafficking every day.

    Trigger warning: many events and descriptions in the following story are graphic and may be triggering for some readers.

    This third and final story in our series belongs to Damita.

    A Survivor’s Story: Laurie

    A Survivor’s Story: Laurie

    Today, we share with you the second story in our series of survivor stories, in honor of Human Trafficking Awareness Month. We are breaking up these stories into what life was like before, during, and after the life. Laurie is brave and has shared details that may be incredibly difficult for some readers, so we want to add an extra level of warning for anyone who may be reading. These are Laurie’s words, as written by Laurie, and serve the purpose of showing you the cost on another human’s life, when people treat people as products to abuse and exploit.

    January 20-21, MY SISTER Mobilizes With You!

    We March For Our Sisters
    It has been one year since we last marched and we are fired up, as advocates and newfound activists prepare for the next election! The mobilization that we have seen across the United States and across the world has been incredible. Last year, we protested leadership that looked the other way on sexual assault and exploitation. Justice has not yet been served and we demand more. Movements like #MeToo#PowerToThePolls#TimesUp, and our #ChoirUp collaboration with Amber Tamblyn have been milestone moments of the past year in fighting the patriarchal system that continues to enable sex trafficking. But again, we demand more. Sex trafficking is a modern form of slavery that tears away the rights of the person being trafficked. Traffickers control income, use threats and extreme violence, and repeatedly rape to assert power and control. The modern feminist movements must address this horrific truth and end sex trafficking.

    A Survivor’s Story: Jenny

    A Survivor's Story - Jenny
    Every survivor’s story is different. The month of January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month, we’re using this time to educate the community about what a survivor endures, their path to breaking free, and how you can help. We will be sharing the stories of three survivors over the next three weeks. Each survivor has come forward with a unique experience and a different story, broken down into three parts: before, during, and after trafficking. One thing remains constant in each story, a trafficker used power and control to keep someone in the life. The women we are featuring were made to feel like products and not people, it needs to end. Read Jenny's story.
