The rise of the Internet, social media, and other technologies have completely revolutionized the way people live. Along with the good these developments have made possible, they have also unleashed tidal waves of sexual harm:
- pornography exposure abuse
- sexually explicit and sexually violent video games
- child sexual abuse images
- “sugar daddy” sites
- online sex trafficking
- prostitution review boards
- compulsive sexual behaviors
- grooming, and more
Modern technology is accelerating the pace and scale of sexual abuse and exploitation. This reality—combined with a toxic deluge of pop culture messages normalizing harmful attitudes and behaviors—is rapidly transforming forms of sexual abuse, violence, and exploitation from the intolerable to the fashionable and “normal.”
Young people are the most impacted. They have little to no chance of living lives free from the harmful impacts of these phenomena.
These challenges are urgent. If we don’t act now, we may miss this narrow window of opportunity to turn the tide. We must stand together to confront the rising tide of abuse and exploitation.
This is why the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Global Summit creates a one-of-a-kind setting, where people from across sexual abuse and exploitation sectors, as well as from a diverse range of professional, political, and personal backgrounds, coalesce to be informed, equipped, connected and inspired. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to find common purpose with others who believe in preserving respect, intimacy, mutuality, responsibility, and love in human sexual relationships. Come join us as we fight for a world free from sexual abuse and exploitation!
