Press Release: Where Do the 2016 Presidential Candidates Stand on Sexual Exploitation?

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation Releases a Survey


 

Washington, DC – The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) released the 2016 Presidential Candidates Survey on Sexual Exploitation today, in an effort to gauge the positions and sentiments of presidential candidates from both parties regarding the multi-faceted spectrum of sexual harm.

“America needs a president who will take a stand against sexual exploitation,” said Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of NCOSE. “This survey asks presidential candidates about their opinions on subjects like human trafficking, the enforcement of existing federal obscenity laws, and websites like Backpage.com that profiteer by advertising the selling of sex. NCOSE believes that these are important issues to prioritize in any presidential election because every individual has a right to freedom from exploitation, objectification, and sexual violence.”
