Sex trafficking is more widespread than you might think, and now there is a move nationwide to reduce demand for commercial sex by 20 percent over two years.

This week, organizations in Boston have joined advocates in 10 other cities in launching a campaign to meet that goal.

The CEASE Network, which stands for Cities Empowered Against Sexual Exploitation, is being spearheaded locally by the Cambridge-based nonprofit Demand Abolition.

Lina Nealon is founding director of the organization and joined WBUR's Morning Edition to speak about efforts across the nation on this issue.

This segment aired on February 5, 2015.
