The Defenders USA is a coalition of men across the United States who fight the commercial sex industry. We’re guys who take a pledge and take action. We educate, equip, and empower other men to fight against the sex industry and protect their families.
As Defenders, we believe that pornography, prostitution, escort services, and strip clubs all contribute to the commercial sex industry. This market produces over 100,000 exploited victims a year – the majority of which are women and children.
Our goal is to mobilize 100,000 men to stand as Defenders, and commit their hearts, minds and resources to defend exploited women and children.
Sex trafficking is a supply and demand issue. If men would not buy girls for sex, there would be no demand and no supply. We are fighting the root of the issue: demand.
A Defender’s first step is to take a pledge to not purchase or participate in pornography, prostitution or any form of commercial sex. After that, being a Defender is a full-time 24/7 job. You can spread the word about the Defenders, you can take action, and you can give to the Defenders USA and Shared Hope to help restore prostituted women and children.
What will you do? Will you man up? Will you join us?
The Defenders Mission
Our primary goal is to raise awareness and advocacy about the realities of pornography and prostitution. Through the work of Shared Hope, we also offer restoration for victims of sex trafficking, and bring justice to traffickers. We also encourage discussion and empower activists, political leaders, college groups, members of the media, faith-based organizations, and other groups to stand against the sex trafficking market. Finally, we defend ourselves, our families, and our communities from sex trafficking and exploitation.
