NCOSE Press Statement logo

WHO: National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE)

EVENT: Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation (CESE) Summit

WHEN: September 29-October 1, 2016

WHERE: Omni Houston Hotel Westside, 13219 Katy Freeway Houston, TX, 77079

WHY: Sexual exploitation impacts every community in America. From pornography, to sex trafficking, sexual violence, sexual objectification, and child sexual abuse, it’s clear that families and communities are wrestling with the ramifications of a wide spectrum of sexual harms. For some, the efforts to combat these harms can feel like an endless game of whack-a-mole. That’s where the CESE Summit comes in.

The CESE Summit provides a cohesive and comprehensive platform for addressing the full spectrum of sexual exploitation. It will unite Houston grassroots efforts with national and international experts, to address the latest research and strategies to end sexual harm.

At the CESE Summit, there will be training for anti-trafficking efforts surrounding the 2017 Super Bowl, education for police officers about sexual violence, tips for parents on how to talk to their children about the harms of pornography, testimonies from trafficking survivors, discussion of key policy issues, and more.

Nancy Jo Sales, award winning journalist and New York Times best-selling author, will speak at the Friday night banquet concerning her book American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers and the impact of technology, sexting, and objectification on the lives of America’s youth.
