Public Education

This approach involves efforts to educate people about prostitution and sex trafficking, and encouraging them not to contribute to sexual exploitation by purchasing sex, or by tolerating or supporting this behavior in others. Some of the education efforts are broadcast widely, while others more narrowly target sex buyers, or boys in an effort to prevent them from becoming men who buy sex.  We know of at least 68 cities and counties in the U.S. that have launched some form of public education effort focused on reducing demand for commerical sex.
