The mission of CEASE Arizona is to eradicate sex trafficking in the state of Arizona by focusing on the demand for paid sex. By disrupting the business of human trafficking through targeted campaigns aimed directly at sex buyers, we can have a measurable impact in the overall size of the market.
Through awareness, education and law enforcement, we aim to stop buyers from purchasing sex at the point of sale, deter them from future transactions, and change the public’s opinions about the harms of prostitution in our community.
CSI is focused on providing mentoring for youth to develop leadership skills, self-esteem, and empowerment. This innovative and robust after school program is primarily aimed at the most vulnerable youth in our communities.
We envision that it could become a model for youth from all kinds of circumstances – privileged and at-risk alike – because recent studies have shown that ALL YOUTH are susceptible to the coercion, exploitation and manipulation of traffickers and others who mean them harm.
Experts in the anti-trafficking movement recognize the unique voice and influence of men to help create just communities in which the vulnerable can thrive. Just.Men.Arizona is a new state-wide initiative launching in 2018 in collaboration with AATN. The goal is to mobilize no fewer than 300 male allies in two years by training them in both demand disruption and demand prevention tactics. Men create the demand that drives sex trafficking. Better men can help end that demand and Just.Men.Arizona is how we’re going to get it done.
