2022 Dirty Dozen List to be Revealed on March 8 

NCOSE Press Statement logo

WHAT: The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) will host an online reveal event of the 2022 Dirty Dozen List of mainstream contributors to sexual exploitation. 

The Dirty Dozen List is an annual campaign highlighting 12 mainstream entities for facilitating, normalizing, and even profiting from sexual abuse and exploitation. Since 2013, the Dirty Dozen List has led to major victories in stemming harm: catalyzing significant improvements at Google, Netflix, TikTok, Hilton Worldwide, Verizon, Walmart, the U.S. Department of Defense, and many more mainstream institutions. 

“Corporations and popular brands shape our culture and influence the ways we think, act, and feel about ourselves and others. And while many of these entities bring positive benefits and allow us to communicate, learn, work, and relax, unfortunately, many are also fueling sexual exploitation through their business practices, policies, and products,” said Lina Nealon, director of corporate and strategic initiatives for the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.   

“Children and marginalized people in particular are being harmed at record numbers due to increased vulnerabilities created by the pandemic – yet corporations continue watching profits skyrocket without prioritizing user protection and well-being. We cannot allow this reality to go unchallenged, and our annual Dirty Dozen List advocates for crucial changes toward corporate social responsibility.”
