Let’s together pledge to:

  • Create a world in which no child is bought or sold.

  • Honor the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

  • Advocate for social services and ask all governments to increase investment in the basic needs of food, clothing, shelter, education, healthcare, and the social and legal protection for all vulnerable children.

  • Demand children who have been trafficked or sexually exploited be treated as victims of a crime, not as criminals themselves.

  • Seek laws and policies that punish the perpetrator-those who buy and sell human beings and those who profit from their sale.

  • Commit to never employing coerced, cheap or unpaid labor that drives the multi-billion-dollar trade in trafficking.

  • Spread awareness about the artists and writers who seek to tell a more accurate story about the hidden truth of sex and labor trafficking.
