Vulnerable people are bought and sold for sex

We’re NOT ok with that

Men create demand. Better men can end it.



Why Men? Why Demand?

EPIK is about mobilizing male allies to disrupt the commercial sex market, equipping them to combat the roots of exploitation and encouraging them to collaborate effectively with the wider anti-trafficking movement.

The Epik Project is a 501(c)3 and was founded in 2012 as a response to the horrific reality of people being bought and sold for sex against their will.

Since then EPIK has become a national leader in the anti-trafficking movement. To date we’ve disrupted over 178,000 attempts by roughly 90,000 men intent on purchasing another human being for sex.

What began in Portland has spread to cities across the country. We’ve done a lot with a little.

Help us do even more in 2020.
