Why You Should Be at the 2018 CESE Global Summit!

The Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Global Summit is just one month away! There is no single event that you could attend that will inspire you more, get you up to speed on the issues faster, or give you the opportunity to network with the anti-sexual exploitation movement’s most influential leaders.

Get Inspired

We have a phenomenal group of speakers lined up for our CESE Summit, and some of the most moving experiences will happen when you hear from survivors of sexual exploitation themselves. Their testimonies, their survival, and their strength to move forward are awe-inspiring.


We have subject matter experts and academics presenting on the best research in the field. Part of winning the battle to defend human dignity is knowing the facts and arming yourself with the best possible arguments. By attending the CESE Summit, you are receiving a compact education that will set you apart in conversations about sexual exploitation issues.


None of us can do the work of ending sexual exploitation alone. We are a team, and our biggest victories occur when our voices are stronger and louder than the people in the world busy ruining lives by fueling sexual exploitation. There is no better place to meet the leaders in the movement than the CESE Summit.

Friend, please take advantage of this life-changing event. Our movement isn’t static; it’s dynamic and growing. We are changing corporate policies, government policies, and most important, people’s lives for the better. We want YOU to be a part of these successes!

I hope you’ll join us just outside Washington, DC this April! Register today!
