Corporations called out for being blind to sex trafficking

An anti-trafficking organization has released its “Dirty Dozen” list of corporations that need to clean up their act.

Now in its 10th year, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation has released its annual Dirty Dozen list of corporations it says are complicit in allowing pornographic trash online, which is routinely tied to sex trafficking.

National Center spokeswoman Lina Nealon tells AFN that Reddit, an already-controversial website, made the 2021 list and is getting even more attention this year. That's because, she says, it is among the “greatest facilitators” of abuse and exploitation.

“It's where sex buyers go to buy it, including young children,” she warns, “and they're seeking to go public this year so we really want to get the general public informed about Reddit.”

Another website that needs attention, Etsy, markets itself as an online source for unique and creative goods, but National Center has heard from people concerned about trafficking because of the website’s hard-core pornography.

Rounding out the Dirty Dozen are Discord, Google, Kanakuk, Kik, Meta, Netflix, Only Fans, Twitter, Verisign and Visa.

People can visit the National Center website and send an email to corporate executives demanding decency from their corporate decisions.
