1.8 million children are trafficked for forced sexual exploitation each year!
Understandably, much of the focus of anti-trafficking programs is on rescuing and rehabilitating victims.
As crucial as this work is, the unfortunate truth is that for every child rescued, there is a steady supply of new children to take their place.
Rescuing victims is simply not enough to stem the tide of exploitation and trafficking.
But — what if you could cut off the flow of finances driving this heinous crime?
That's the position Stuart Davis is championing as a marketplace thought leader and global finance executive.
He has leveraged his role in the financial services sector to build a public-private partnership to fight human-trafficking and child exploitation through the detection of money laundering related to child sexual exploitation.
To learn more about Stuart Davis, and the important role he is spearheading in both the private and public sector to protect children from sexual exploitation, join our next Justice Network webinar on Sept 29, at 2 pm ET (New York Time).
