Tina Dalgren wrote -ECPAT is a network of organizations and individuals working together to eliminate the commercial sexual exploitation of children around the world. It seeks to encourage the world community to ensure that children everywhere enjoy their fundamental rights free from all forms of commercial sexual exploitation.
Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children is a catch all term that covers the various methods of how children are abused, most typically for the financial gain of a third party but not always, and includes prostitution, pornography, sex tourism and other forms of human trafficking.
We undertake research, training, awareness raising, policy development and advocacy to protect children who are sexually exploited by:
Americans who travel abroad;
Children who are trafficked to the United States from other countries; and
American children who are trafficked and exploited within their own country.
We are the leading policy organization in the United States.
