Boston Organizations Join Other Cities In Campaign Against Sex TraffickingPlay
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.
