Changing Policies That Exploit

NCOSE’s public policy team aims to defend dignity and combat sexploitation through political advocacy at the national and state levels with bi-partisan support of all legislative solutions. Our task is both offensive and defensive: We must work to educate Congress and state legislatures, so policymakers produce legislation that prevents sexual exploitation and protects its victims. As often, NCOSE is compelled to combat bad initiatives that would, for example, increase sex trafficking by expanding the commercial sex trade—a real fight we’ve faced (and won) since 2018.

NCOSE is establishing a complete library of the best model legislation in America to stop sexual exploitation. We are growing our effort and are proactively engaged in the Congress and various state legislatures to promote our legislation and turn back initiatives of our opponents. This includes, cleaning up the Internet by holding on-line providers and platforms accountable harm the facilitate and creating policies that decriminalize victims of sexual exploitation while increasing accountability for those who do the harm – pimps/traffickers and sex buyers. NCOSE assists legislators and interest groups, on a national and local level, working to improve their legislative proposals. This includes providing model sexually-oriented business laws, internet filtering laws, model RICO laws, optimal prostitution legislation, nude dancing regulations, massage parlor ordinances, obscenity laws, child sexual abuse material laws, and laws harmful to minors.

Current Priorities

Sex buyer accountability to shrink the commercial sex trade and decrease the lifelong harm.

Legislative solutions, including funding streams, to provide exit services and support to individuals victimized by the sexual exploitation industry.

Reform of digital platforms & devices to prioritize online child protection.

Justice for victims of filmed child sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and non-consensual content posted on online prostitution and pornography websites such as OnlyFans or Pornhub.
