About Now & Next

Now & Next: The 2020 World Without Exploitation Convening in Washington, D.C. brings together a national community of WorldWE members and allies to explore what’s new and what’s next in the movement to end human trafficking and sexual exploitation. With a four-part focus on direct service, legal advocacy, communications & storytelling, and trauma stewardship, Now & Next will be both aspirational and practical, homing in on actionable ways to make our movement and our membership more effective.

History shows us that lasting social and legal change occurs when many people – often very different people – come together on behalf of a shared goal. We may not always agree on tactics or solutions, but we do agree passionately on the importance of debate, dialogue, and finding common ground in order to create sustainable political and cultural transformation. This is what Now & Next is all about.

Our Goals Are

Fostering Collaboration

Our Convening will foster and further collaboration between WorldWE members and new allies.

Encouraging New Approaches

Now & Next will encourage new approaches to seemingly intractable movement challenges.

Creating Change

Our gathering will be a safe, diverse, and inclusive environment for participants seeking to create change while in community with one another.
