Indiana's Not Buying It: Human Trafficking Training (1 hr. CLE)
Tamara L. Weaver, Deputy Attorney General, Office of the Indiana Attorney General
Join the Office of the Attorney General in the fight against human trafficking. The most critical approach to tackling this issue around the globe and here in Indiana is to eradicate the demand for commercial sex and the commodification of women and children. With a continuous, ever-increasing demand for the purchase of sex, so follows the supply. In simplified economic terms, if no one demanded the purchase of sex from women and children, pimps and traffickers would not supply them.
Our cultural tolerance of commercial sex along with constant objectification and sexualization of women and young girls fuels the demand for human trafficking. The Internet markets commercial sex and pornography to an increasingly young demographic, and in turn becomes the gateway to turning those viewers into buyers and perpetrators.
This is why Indiana has adopted the nationwide "Not Buying It" initiative. The goal for this initiative is to encourage all 50 states to get involved in the "Not Buying It" initiative so, together, we can put an end to sex trafficking.
Please join us by committing that you are not going to be a part of this problem and to firmly state that you are "Not Buying It." Click here for more information.
