Media Advisory: 12 Companies to be Named as Major Sexual Exploiters on NCOSE’s 2017 Dirty Dozen List

NCOSE Press Statement logo

WHO: National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE)

EVENT: Online Press Conference for the 2017 Dirty Dozen List, Live-Streamed

WHEN: 1:00 PM ETFebruary 22, 2017


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 the bad corporate actors in America that perpetuate sexual exploitation—whether that be through pornography, prostitution, or sex trafficking.

The 2017 Dirty Dozen List is an activism tool that has instigated tremendous corporate changes.

Previous victories include: four major hotels (Hilton, Hyatt, InterContinental Hotels Group, and Starwood) agreed to stop selling on-demand pornography, the Department of Defense stopped selling pornography on army and airforce bases, Google adopted a policy to prohibit pornography ads, and more.

Tune-in to the online press conference to discover which companies and organizations will be named and targeted this year.
