Board of Directors

We, the Board of Directors of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, believe unequivocally that all people deserve to live, love, and thrive free from sexual abuse and exploitation.

Through strategic vision-building, provision of operational oversight, forging of strong relationships, and sharing of subject matter expertise, each member gives deeply of themselves to the cause. Members of the Board come from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, and bring unique political and personal views to the table, yet we each agree on the need to combat the multi-faceted web of sexual abuse. Our shared vision to preserve and protect human dignity and end sexual exploitation fosters a more effective and unified movement. 

We invite and welcome you to join us!
