Webinar: Dismantling the Pornography Industry and Making the Internet Safe for Children

On Wednesday, February 23, 2022 at 11:00 - 12:00 ET



The pornography industry is predatory and inherently exploitative. Pornographers take advantage of lax enforcement of State and federal laws against sexual exploitation and misuse federal protections for internet companies as a shield against liability for their contribution to sexual violence and sex trafficking. But they can no longer hide. The science is conclusive. Pornography is linked to trafficking, sexual violence, sexual dysfunction, family breakdown, child pornography and sexual abuse of children.

This event discusses the recent work of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) and other protagonists in the fight against the pornography industry and sex trafficking, highlighting the importance of holding online digital platforms accountable for the crimes they facilitate and the social harms they perpetuate. Law enforcement does not have the resources and know-how to effectively police tech platforms, so they must learn to police themselves if they want to keep taking advantage of the online marketplace.
