About

The sex trafficking of Connecticut women, men, and children is driven by demand for the commercial sex acts they perform. Put simply, without "buyers" to purchase sex there would be no sex-for-pay industry. Who are these "buyers?" What do we know about the individuals in Connecticut who pay to sexually abuse children and exploited adults? The Trafficking in Persons Council's End Demand Campaign seeks to;

1.      Raise public awareness, 
2.      Engage local and state leaders in anti-demand efforts, 
3.      Support law enforcement in anti-demand initiatives, and
4.      Improve public policy aimed at curbing demand.
