12 Companies to be Named as Major Sexual Exploiters on NCOSE’s 2019 Dirty Dozen List

WHO: National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE)

EVENT: Press Conference, In-Person and Live-Streamed

WHEN: 11:00 AM ET—February 11, 2019

WHERE: www.DirtyDozenList.com

WHY: No corporation should profit from or facilitate sexual exploitation.

Unfortunately, many well-established brands, companies, and organizations in America do just that. Since 2013, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation has published an annual Dirty Dozen List to name and shame leading mainstream players in America that perpetuate sexual exploitation—whether that be through sex trafficking, prostitution, pornography, sexual violence and/or sexual objectification.

The Dirty Dozen List is an activism tool that gives back power to individuals who want a voice in the culture by taking online actions.

The Dirty Dozen List has a track record of uniting thousands of individual actions and targeting them to create monumental changes, such as:

  • 2,083,100 military service members now receive anti-sex trafficking training with the issue of pornography explained as a factor driving demand;
  • 2 billion monthly active devices subscribing to Google Play are no longer able to download pornographic and sexually explicit apps through Google’s sanctioned online store;
  • 1,000,000+ Comcast customers will now have the ability to block out pornographic content with improved parental controls and have access to new features promoting digital safety and preventing unintentional exposure to pornography;
  • and many more!

Join us in-person or via online live stream for the reveal of the 2019 Dirty Dozen List. You can register for the event by visiting DirtyDozenList.com.
