Asset 33

Our mission is to disrupt the demand that drives sexual exploitation and dismantle the forces that perpetuate it

Commercial sexual exploitation is a lucrative business system that thrives across North America

Those who’ve survived this kind of exploitation can attest to the trauma, violence and degradation inherent in commercial sex. From the beginning, Epik has listened carefully to these survivors and kept our focus squarely on the demand that drives this exploitative system. Sex trafficking is driven by demand. Demand is driven by men. At Epik, our mission is to equip better men to disrupt this demand and dismantle the forces that enable it to thrive.

Our primary demand disruption strategy is the Cyber Patrol

Since 2013, Epik has been actively disrupting the online demand by making contact at its source. Through the creative use of custom and “off the shelf” technology solutions, you can join a highly skilled team of men and learn how to disrupt online sex buyers at the point of sale.
