We recently discovered Facebook Live! This video explains our excitement about the Hilton hotel’s decision to cancel as the host of the TEXXXAS pornography expo!
An excerpt of our recent press statement reads:
“I want to publicly thank Hilton Worldwide, its CEO Christopher Nassetta, and HVMG for their decision to cancel the contract with the TEXXXAS pornography expo,” said Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation. “This event had the potential to facilitate an increased demand for prostitution, and sex trafficking, in the local area. This would have partly resulted from the demand for commercial sex both at the expo and surrounding after parties at local strip clubs. I am so grateful to Hilton Worldwide, because within 48 hours of being informed of the exploitive consequences of the TEXXXAS expo, Hilton cancelled the event. Hilton executives displayed laudable principles of conscious capitalism through these actions. I hope that they will codify these decisions with a brand-wide policy to not host sexually exploitive conferences or events of any kind, and that the entire hotel industry will follow suit. I urge all other hotel chains to refuse to host this TEXXXAS expo in favor of community and guest safety.”
