The Defender Program

A Defender is a proponent of creating a world free from Sexual Exploitation. A Defender is a pillar of unwavering support in the fight to oppose sexual exploitation and defend human dignity. The National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s Defenders are concerned individuals and families that contribute monthly to further the efforts of this mission.

Defenders receive regular, insider updates on the National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s efforts as well as tools to help combat sexual exploitation in their own homes, schools, businesses, and communities. The National Center on Sexual Exploitation relies on our Defenders to plan sustainable attacks on the culture of sexploitation we are all mired in. Defenders are powerful champions of human dignity.
