For #HumanTraffickingAwarenessMonth, we want to highlight our work with Children at Risk to end the demand for sex trafficking.

The focus has historically been on arresting victims of trafficking while buyers faced little to no consequences. But punishing victims doesn't help aid their safety and recovery, and criminal records make it harder to access housing, child care, and employment. It also discourages victims and survivors from contacting law enforcement for help.

So instead, we advocate for policies that target the buyers, who are more susceptible to police presence and more likely to end their behavior due to intervention.

'Wood, now 34, described the incident as being “coerced into a commercial sex act under false pretenses,” which she said was “just the beginning” of Manson’s years of violence. It’s not the first time Wood has accused Manson — who she dated until 2010 — of abuse. In 2018, Wood testified before the California senate about an anonymous abusive relationship she’d had, eventually naming Manson as her abuser in 2021. She’s since accused him him of anti-Semitic abuse and threatening to harm her son.'
