Demand An End Campaign
Freedom Now USA is excited to partner with the Kansas Attorney General and others to promote the Demand An End campaign, a public awareness campaign focused on decreasing the demand for sex trafficking. It is designed to complement and build upon legislative initiatives to deter buyers and reduce the demand for commercial sex. Kansas is one of 11 states participating in this effort supported by Street Grace, a national organization that mobilizes community resources to fight sex trafficking through awareness, education and action. The driving force behind domestic sex trafficking is the demand for commercial sex. If nobody purchased individuals for sex, the crime of sex trafficking wouldn’t exist. Below are three key links to learn more about how you can engage the issue of Demand.
