1. Make meaningful connections with others who are just as passionate about ending sexual exploitation.
The Global CESE Summit is the premier place for anyone passionate about ending sexual exploitation and abuse. Last year, we had over 22,000 attendees from 110 different countries represented! You’ll have the opportunity to not only hear from incredible speakers, but network, connect, and participate in sessions and workshops with the thousands of other experts, educators, parents, lawmakers, and allies who are ready to end sexual exploitation.
One attendee from last year said:
“Amazing! I felt like the world is a much bigger and hopeful place. It was incredible to connect with so many people from all around the world who are also passionate about the same thing.”
We need your voice and your passion at the table with us as we work for a better world!
2. Over 100 speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds, expertise, and issue topics to choose from.
No matter what your personal story or background is, the CESE Summit truly has something for everyone.
Covering issues from sex trafficking, demand, child sexual abuse, objectification, protecting children and teens, technology solutions, legislation and policy, litigation, direct services, and more—you will walk away better equipped to fight exploitation in whatever field you may be in.
We already have quite the impressive lineup of researchers, survivors, educators, issue experts, and more ready to share their knowledge and experience. You can see the speakers and read more about the event here.
3. You can watch and participate anywhere—even from the comfort of your own home.
While we love seeing our fellow advocates in person (and hope to do so again soon!), the CESE Summit is all online again this year! By going virtual, we are able to include more voices, meet new allies, and equip more activists with critical information for the battle against sexual abuse and exploitation!
The increased capacity to reach more ears and hear more voices—and to keep people safe—has led us to host the 2021 Summit online.
Registering for the 2021 CESE Global Summit means signing up to learn more about the scope and impact of sexual abuse and exploitation—and what you can do about it. It means you have the freedom to pick which subjects are the most important to you, network and chat with other attendees on your own time, AND you can do it all from your phone or computer screen!
4. The movement to end sexual exploitation is more empowered than ever.
We have seen incredible momentum in the movement against sexual exploitation and abuse in the past year, and we need your help harnessing that energy as we continue the fight!
The online pornography industry continues to crumble before our eyes in the wake of accusations against pornography tube site Pornhub and Xvideos for hosting and profiting from child sexual abuse material. Several states have passed on decriminalizing prostitution, and more are recognizing the need for legislation that protects our children online BEFORE they are harmed.
