Yesterday, May 12, Audrey Morrissey, Associate Director of My Life My Choice, took part in the Carter Center’s World Summit on Ending Sexual Exploitation. The summit brought together advocates, nongovernmental organizations, and government officials from nine countries to organize actions to end the sexual exploitation of women and children.
Major participants in this summit included: former U.S. president Jimmy Carter and former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Several U.S. senators and members of law enforcement and human trafficking advocacy groups, including My Life My Choice, were present as well.
Participants in the summit shared knowledge, resources, and experience to help develop solutions and to reach the goals of creating national and international networks to reduce the demand for sex workers, develop plans to reverse trends of exploitation, and mobilization of communities to dismantle the sexual exploitation industry.
