CAASE is mentioned in a story today on CNN about a girl who survived prostitution after being recruited into the trade at age 11. The research cited in the story is "Deconstructing the Demand for Prostitution", a project generously funded by the Chicago Foundation for Women and the Michael Reese Health Trust.
The CNN story is heartbreaking yet inspiring. We can all do more to raise awareness about the commercial sexual exploitation of children. We also urge you to check out our tool kits here, which offer action steps you can take to end sexual exploitation. Want to get involved with CAASE and our End Demand Illinois campaign?
