Washington, D.C. (April 28, 2015) – National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCSE) announced today that Dawn Hawkins, NCSE’s Executive Director, has been appointed Vice President. NCSE’s Board of Directors honors Hawkins for her leadership over the last four years, which has led the organization to numerous victories and significant contributions to the movement against sexual exploitation.

“From the imagination and hard work of Dawn Hawkins, a nationwide movement against sexual exploitation has been formed and the National Center on Sexual Exploitation recognizes that accomplishment by honoring her today,” stated Patrick Trueman, President of National Center on Sexual Exploitation.

In her tenure at NCSE, Hawkins’ initiatives have led to sweeping changes of policies that foster exploitation for targets such as Google, Groupon, Verizon and the Department of Defense. Hawkins has organized many grassroots campaign efforts including a highly successful nationwide letter writing and email campaign targeting executives from the major airlines, which led to policy changes prohibiting pornography viewing on planes. Through her leadership, NCSE has grown a network reaching hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, including organizing a national Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation comprised of 280 groups purposed to defend dignity and oppose sexual exploitation.

Mrs. Hawkins received her B.A. from Tufts University.
