USCSAHT Supports the Equality Model

Human Trafficking is an estimated $150 billion industry that exploits approximately 40 million people worldwide. It’s simple Economics 101. Without demand, there would be no supply. While most people are exploited in labor trafficking, the majority of profits come from sexual exploitation.
The U.S. Catholic Sisters support the Equality Model, also known as the Nordic Model, as a way to protect those who are most vulnerable to sex trafficking and the inherent dignity of our brothers and sisters.
Studies have shown that countries that have implemented the Equality Model have reduced the demand for prostitution, sex trafficking, and are more successful in dedicating support services for survivors. As a result, societal attitudes shift, which results in an increased belief in gender equality.
