While the problem of sexual exploitation is as immense as ever, opportunities to take new ground abound. Now, more than ever, the burgeoning movement to end sexual exploitation needs to be energized, equipped, encouraged and inspired.


Your experience and leadership are vital to harnessing that energy, equipping emerging leaders, and inspiring the generation to dream of a world free from sexual exploitation. If you’re not already a leader in the movement, but you have passion for tackling all forms of sexual exploitation, there is no better time or place to network and learn. The movement’s premiere leaders and influencers will be together — all in one place!  You’ll be brought up to speed fast on the most pressing issues and research of the day, and make incredible connections.


Please join us for the 2019 Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Global Summit June 12-15, 2019 and share your voice and vision with others. Go ahead, make a down payment on a future that fosters human dignity and sexual justice!
