a. Support your local law enforcement in enforcing the NEW LAWS passed since 2013. Most laws are to arrest pimps. b. Use Shared Hopes tools to BRING JUSTICE and write to your lawmakers to encourage stricter penalties on BUYERS as a deterrent. c. We will END DEMAND only when there are strong deterrents for those who are buying children for sex acts. If theres no market, theres no need for a product.
