Neighborhood Action

This intervention involves organized, community-led initiatives. Neighborhood action can involve activities such as routinely forwarding tips to police, conducting citizen patrols, operating citizen-led blogs, or launching billboard campaigns. Some neighborhood organizations participate in “community impact panels” or make presentations at john schools.  We know of more than 125 U.S. cities and counties that have engaged in some form of neighborhood-led action focused on combating demand for commercial sex.
