Employers Against Sex Trafficking (EAST)
Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Attorney General Maura Healey adopted zero-tolerance policies for sex-buying in their workplaces. We invite your organization to join by making the same commitment. Human traffickers profit from the sexual exploitation of vulnerable children and adults. This is fueled by those looking to buy sex.
About the initiative
Arrest data show that many sex buyers are our employees and co-workers. Criminals are also using business products and services to facilitate illegal sex trafficking. The business community plays a critical role in reducing the demand for buying illegal sex.
