Introducing the World Without Exploitation Youth Coalition.

About Us

The fight to create a world where no one is bought, sold or exploited is a fightfor the future - and creating an exploitation-free future is what the World Without Exploitation Youth Coalition is all about. Our new, national, youth-led network–madeup of young people, ages 15 to 28–is using advocacy, educational, and awareness raising initiatives to create change while supporting a culture of inclusion and diversity. Young survivor leaders, students, professionals, activists, artists and allies are all encouraged to be a part of our efforts. We're doing this through:

Public Education

Hosting youth-targeted and led events, webinars, and monthly coalition meetings that educate on the issues of sexual exploitation and human trafficking.

Awareness Raising

Developing a strong social media presence to raise awareness about exploitation while engaging youth through a variety of virtual platforms.

Legal Advocacy

Advocating for policy change through direct engagement with policymakers and decision makers, while supporting and creating campaigns that uplift the voices of survivors.
