The first step in eradicating something is to educate yourself on it.

Some days it seems like we are climbing a mountain in the fight against human trafficking, but educating yourself is the first step to ending it.

During the Lenten Season, we are offering you a few ways to get involved in the fight against trafficking. 

Join the USCSAHT's Education Resource & Advocacy Working Groups for one or more of these excellent opportunities to learn more about human trafficking. 


Pornography and Trafficking: Unpacking the Symbiosis

Monday March, 27th
1:00pm EST
Dr. Gail Dines
While sex trafficking and porn have both been defined as forms of sexual violence, rooted in a system of gender inequality, what is often overlooked is the way these two industries are culturally and economically linked. This presentation will explore how porn acts as both a method of recruitment into trafficking, and a major driver of demand.  Drawing from empirical research and testimonies from porn performers, trafficked women, and sex buyers, I argue that as long as we have a multi-billion-dollar porn industry, we will always have sex trafficking. The hard-core nature of mainstream porn means that women performers can only tolerate the body-punishing sex for approximately three months, after which they are often trafficked into brothels by their "agents," who act as pimps. Once recruited into the brothels, these women are often forced into "porn sex" by sex buyers whose sexual template and identity were shaped by porn.  By unpacking this symbiotic relationship between porn and trafficking, we can develop a more nuanced theory and practice to abolish all forms of sexual violence.
