Those who rape and assault children can legitimately be labeled "monsters” - they’re easy to condemn. But prostitution and the victimization of those involved in the sex trades is frequently ignored, if not celebrated, by mainstream culture. The widespread acceptance of prostitution by the general society must stop.
I began volunteering with BEST in order to contribute to this movement. The evolving approach by law enforcement to prosecute the buyers of sex rather than the prostituted boys, girls, women, and men is a welcome change. Still, there are far too many people engaging in sex buying to rely on the criminal justice system alone. Every attorney who advises employers and plaintiffs’ attorneys need to be informed about this crime as it relates to the business environment.
This upcoming CLE will discuss legal strategies that can empower victims to cut off the assets that help traffickers engage in their illegal trade. In addition, employers can help reduce rates of sex buying and trafficking, which is simply a proactive and sound business decision. Businesses can take steps to shield themselves from financial liability, public relations disasters, claims of “hostile work environment,” and so much more. Please join me and a panel of incredibly knowledgeable attorneys on November 8th to learn more about sex trafficking and the vital role you can play in preventing victimization.
