1 hour 30 mins from 1:00pm – 2:30pm EST

The purpose of this module is to recognize and understand the roles that traffickers and gangs play as they provide the supply of children in sex trafficking. Additionally, the module will focus on how buyers contribute to the demand for child sex trafficking and how each group continues the cycle of victimization. Societal factors around the acceptance of violence and how that contributes to supply and demand will also be addressed. Finally, the module will briefly discuss demand reduction strategies.
