Exploit No More

Exploit No More

Exploit No More exists to empower Milwaukee’s children to rise out of sex trafficking.  Our goal is to lend voices to children who have been sold for sex, to mobilize our community to do something about it, and to provide long-term residential aftercare to children freed from the chains of commercial sexual exploitation.

In 2010, a number of Milwaukee-area churches began to ask the question, “What is being done to directly impact children caught up in or forced to engage in sex trafficking? And how can the local church engage in this effort?”

After a year of talking with law enforcement, first-responders, and other agencies about our city’s counter-trafficking needs, one need became abundantly clear: child victims of sex trafficking desperately need a community of support and safety to help them pursue freedom and healing.

After a year of talking with law enforcement, first-responders, and other agencies about our city’s counter-trafficking needs, one need became abundantly clear: child victims of sex trafficking desperately need a community of support and safety to help them pursue freedom and healing.

While several non-profits in Milwaukee currently serve child victims of sex trafficking in a variety of important ways, none specifically offer Christ-centered, long-term rehabilitative care. In 2012, seven Milwaukee-area churches came together to respond to this need, and a vision for Exploit No More was born.

Exploit No More exists to reflect Christ’s love by working to eradicate child sex trafficking in the Greater Milwaukee area. Our primary purpose is to empower—to empower children rising out of sex trafficking through aftercare, to empower everyday citizens to turn their passion for this issue into action, and to empower the voices of communities and victims to advocate for sound anti-trafficking laws and policies.

The way we seek to engage in this work is three-fold:

  1. We offer programming and resources to build awareness about the child sex trafficking issue in Greater 
  2. We advocate, and mobilize others to support, laws and policies that foster strong, victim-centered 
  3. We provide long-term residential aftercare to child victims who have been rescued from sex trafficking in the Milwaukee metro area.

Exploit No More is currently in the early stages organization-building. Our first year and a half has been dedicated to stirring awareness about this pressing issue, hiring key staff, and pursuing licensing and property to begin offering a safehouse for victims coming out of commercial exploitation.
