Now & Next: The 2019 World Without Exploitation Convening in Washington, D.C., brings together a national community of WorldWE members and allies to explore what’s new and what’s next in the movement to end human trafficking and sexual exploitation. With a four-part focus on direct service, legal advocacy, communications & storytelling, and trauma stewardship, Now & Next will be both aspirational and practical, homing in on actionable ways to make our movement and our membership more effective.
History shows us that lasting social and legal change occurs when many people – often very different people – come together on behalf of a shared goal. We may not always agree on tactics or solutions, but we do agree passionately on the importance of debate, dialogue, and finding common ground in order to create sustainable political and cultural transformation. This is what Now & Next is all about.
