Whenever there is a crisis, those who are most vulnerable suffer the most. Organizations working to end sexual exploitation are facing demands of unprecedented proportions. Rescue shelters are overflowing. Victims seeking rescue are increasing. Youth are spending every day in a home environment that is toxic and unsafe. Residential houses for survivors must remain operational 24 hours each day. Recovering women transitioning into their new lives have limited accessibility to support systems. Adults at home with their children are not aware that the more a child is online, the greater her/his chances are of being approached by a predator.
We want the community to know that we are accelerating our work, and stepping up to do all we can to be both the lifeline and anchor that so many need.

IHTI is proud to partner with Men Stopping Violence to offer a limited training series called “What Men Can Do to Stop Sexual Exploitation: A Conversation for Men.” This conversation series is geared toward males, but all are welcome to attend.
Most men oppose sex trafficking. Most men do not purchase sex. However, all men can take action to reduce the demand that drives sex trafficking and sexual exploitation.
We invite men to join us for a free, one-hour conversation about what can men say and do to make a difference. All conversations are facilitated by a trained Men Stopping Violence instructor.
