Exodus Cry is an organization that is committed to abolishing sex trafficking and breaking the cycle of commercial sexual exploitation while assisting and empowering its victims. Exodus Cry believes that as heinous as sex trafficking is, it is only one component of a larger system of exploitation. This anti-trafficking organization is committed to uprooting the underlying issues which requires examining the entire global sex industry; this includes: stripping, pornography, and prostitution.
One of the ways Exodus Cry is fighting to uproot the underlying issues of the sex industry is by powering the Traffickinghub campaign founded by Laila Mickelwait. Traffickinghub is a campaign to shut down Pornhub and hold its executives accountable for aiding in sex trafficking. Exodus Cry released a video titled, “Pornhub Exposed as Traffickinghub”, it has currently received over 33 million views and counting. The campaign is supported by a broad spectrum of over 300 child protection, anti-trafficking and women’s rights organizations, as well as experts and trafficking survivors of all backgrounds.
Exodus Cry is also well known for its storytelling and fact sharing through the art of film. In 2011, Nefarious: Merchant of Souls was released and went on to receive over 24 Film Festival Honors, including: Best Feature Documentary. The film focuses on uncovering the hidden underworld of sex slavery with interviews and testimonies from former traffickers and sex trafficking survivors. Their second film, Liberated, explores the question of how western culture shapes our ideas of gender and sex and the normalization and even glorification of men consuming women for sex. Both films are sobering eye openers that provoke you to examine your own way of life and get involved with actively fighting against sex slavery and exploitation.
