World Without Exploitation and our partners are working to ignite systemic change in states across the country.

In 2023, World Without Exploitation and our partners put the Equality Model on the map in the United States with the passage of groundbreaking legislation in Maine. This made Maine the first state in the country to decriminalize those exploited in the sex trade, prioritize exit services, and hold accountable those who purchase and profit off of the exploitation of others.  

It is time to build on this momentum as a movement to promote policies that provide services and empower survivors and dismantle systems that perpetuate the commodification of people.

At the heart of our efforts lies a simple core principle: When we work together, we can collectively ignite lasting legislative and societal change.

That’s where you come in . . . 

We invite you to join us and hundreds of other movement leaders, activists, opinion shapers, and policy experts for The 2024 World Without Exploitation Conference: Navigating from Now to Next, to build on our collective successes and spark change in communities across the country. 

Join us for two days of robust and actionable skill-building and education June 12th through 14th in Washington, DC, where we will feature innovative solutions and impactful strategies to navigate the movement to end exploitation. Together, we will explore where we are NOW and where we will go NEXT. With our interactive programming, you’ll experience immersive and engaging content in specialized topic areas in sync with the needs of the movement today, such as nonprofit advocacy, legal remedies for survivors, civil advocacy, trauma and long-term health impacts, media and communications strategies, and more; all facilitated by an inspiring roster of nationally and internationally recognized expert panelists and speakers.
