First Edition Research Summary and 3 Key Events on the Exploitation of Boys and Men

I wanted to share some exciting news with you: we are generating a massive and much-needed shift in the way our movement addresses the sexual exploitation of boys and men.

Male victims of sexual exploitation, sexual violence, sex trafficking, childhood exposure to pornography, and other sexual harms are virtually voiceless today. They are suffering alone and in the shadows. If we want to end all forms of sexual exploitation, we cannot continue to ignore the suffering of boys and men.

So how are we changing the way our movement tackles this problem?

We recently held a historic series of events, including a press conference at the National Press Club and attended by members of the national press, exposing the complex web of sexual exploitation harming boys and men.

During this event we revealed our first edition research summary on this topic

The next day, we got some of the most influential movers and shakers together in one room, to influence nearly 200 attendees at an incredible symposium: a male survivor of sex trafficking; a recovered pornography addict who now helps others overcome the same; two PhDs who have delved into the issues of male sexual exploitation; and other leaders of the movement. Next, we met with dozens of interested and concerned students at Washington College, young people who will be tomorrow’s leaders, and engaged them in an invigorating discussion.

The speakers at our events enlightened minds, touched hearts, and inspired action. This is precisely the change we need to see in our movement. With your support, we are working to enlighten and educate, endow hearts with passion for the suffering of victims of sexual exploitation, and motivate activists to make real change in our world.

THANK YOU so much for your support and dedication to this cause.

Together, we can generate a seismic shift — from a world where male victims are ignored, to a world where they know they can find resources, hope, and healing, and even better, where fewer and fewer ever become victims to begin with.
