Register for Webinar online at bit.ly/fantasyorreality

 September 22, 9pm EDT

 

This webinar is an in-depth look at the fantasies of pornography that drive purchasers and lure victims into sex trafficking. It will empower faith communities to integrate strategic action plans to educate and protect children and families.

“To have any hope of prevention we have to recognize the fantasy.” 

Fantasy or Reality: Driving demand. What is pornography? Who are the purchasers? Do purchasers of pornography understand that they are being sold a fantasy? They are buying a real person and paying to exploit that person. Learn how every click for pornography drives the market for more supply, more trafficked women and children for sex. 

Fantasy or Reality: Luring victims. Who are the women and children portrayed in pornographic images and videos? Learn about the role that fantasy vs. reality plays in their victimization. Discover what increases victims’ vulnerability.

A survivor’s story of reality vs. fantasy 

Empowering Faith Communities to Prevent & Protect: Reality means teaching Truth. Our faith community leaders can fight pornography by dispelling the fantasy, teaching the difference between prostitution and sex trafficking. We can also teach the harm of the fantasy. Our communities can and must learn how to prevent and protect our sons and daughters.
