It’s almost time for the premier event bringing together thousands of advocates, experts, educators, parents, lawmakers, and allies who are ready to end sexual exploitation! Join the National Center on Sexual Exploitation and the worldwide network of people passionate about ending exploitation at the 7th annual Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation (CESE) Global Summit this July 20-24, 2021.
Last year, in the wake of a global pandemic, we were faced with the decision to either cancel our yearly conference or move to a virtual format. The results of this decision had an incredible impact we never could have imagined! The 2020 Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation (CESE) Global Summit brought together over 22,000 people passionate about fighting for a world free from sexual abuse and exploitation.
Just by going virtual, we were able to include more voices, meet new allies, and equip more activists with critical information for the battle against sexual abuse and exploitation—and we look forward to doing it again this year!
The increased capacity to reach more ears and hear more voices—and to keep people safe—has led us to host the 2021 Summit online once again. Registering for the 2021 CESE Global Summit means signing up to learn more about the scope and impact of sexual abuse and exploitation—and what you can do about it. It means you have the freedom to pick which subjects are the most important to you, network and chat with other attendees on your own time, AND you can do it all from your phone or computer screen!
We already have quite the impressive lineup of researchers, survivors, educators, issue experts, and more ready to share their knowledge and experience. You can see the speakers and read more about the event here.
The Summit isn’t just about reviewing the latest research—though experts will do that. It’s also about connecting with others in the movement, centering survivor voices, uniting efforts to find solutions, and feeling inspired to keep going.
Here are some comments from last year’s attendees:
“Gaining so much information from amazing people across the world from my own home!”
“I was so impressed by the overwhelming amount of people that were coming together to fight this epidemic!”
“Best professional development opportunity I’ve seen since entering this field 20 years ago.”
“Amazing! I felt like the world is a much bigger and hopeful place. It was incredible to connect with so many people from all around the world who are also passionate about the same thing.”
We hope you will join us and have a similar experience! We’ve seen the power a collective movement can have on corporations, legislation, and the public. The movement against sexual exploitation needs your voice!
