Don’t Miss the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Summit

“What can I do in the fight against pornography and sexual exploitation?”

If you’ve ever had this question, we have the answer for you at the 2018 Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation (CESE) Global Summit.

Countless victories in this movement, from getting Utah to declare pornography a public health crisis to convincing grocery stores to cover Cosmopolitan magazine to taking on fierce opposition from the tech world to curb online sex trafficking, have been accomplished because of a well-informed individual in the local community.

You can become equipped to be that kind of key advocate for human dignity by attending our CESE Global Summit! The 2018 CESE Summit will be held April 4-7 in Washington, DC. It is sure to bolster efforts to combat pornography, sex trafficking, prostitution, child sexual abuse, sexual violence, sexualized media, and more.

At the Summit, you will be able to meet leading experts, and to make connections with recovery programs, prevention efforts, and ministries addressing these issues. You will walk out of this four-day event empowered with the knowledge of the latest research, and the inspiration and ideas for ways YOU can make a difference in YOUR hometown.

Whether you are looking for ways to protect your family, educate your friends, or take action against a form of sexual exploitation near you, this is the event to attend. Visit the CESE Summit webpage to learn more, and to register: http://endsexualexploitation.org/cesesummit2018/
