Is to actively disrupt the commercial sex market at the point of sale through personal man-to-man conversations with potential buyers who contact prostitution ads online, while exposing and putting community pressure on property owners where known illicit/erotic massage parlors (brothels) are thinly disguised as legitimate businesses.
We are training men about the causes and solutions to sexual exploitation and how they can leverage their voice to speak up for the voiceless.
SEX TRAFFICKING HAPPENS RIGHT HERE IN ARIZONA!
Commercial sex costs Arizona more thank you think!
Arizona’s geographic location and network of freeways makes it a hub for illicit activity. According to the U.S. State Department, Arizona is a main destination and transit point for labor and sex trafficking from within the U.S. and multiple regions of the world. The biggest misconception is that trafficking is something that happens overseas.
Local and federal law enforcement has indicated that sex trafficking is happening in Arizona at an alarming rate. According to a study by STIR, 78,000 men in Phoenix are online sex ad customers.
WE CAN’T SIMPLY ARREST OUR WAY OUT OF THIS PROBLEM.
It’s big business and the pimps get the profits!
Profit from sex trafficking is a billion-dollar business, second only to the illicit drug trade, and surpassing the sale of illegal arms. Sex trafficking is a high profit, low risk business where the commodity can be sold repeatedly and requires supply and demand. The smart phone in your pocket is the brothel of the 21st Century.
IT’S DEMAND DRIVEN FUELLED MOSTLY BY MEN !
We need men to fight the biggest social justice issue of our time.
According to the Demanding Justice Report 99% of the buyers are men. Men are systemic to the problem and therefore men are systemic to the answer. Only through educating men will we slow down this epidemic within the U.S.
Our mission is to bring men to the fight to end demand for prostituted people We educate buyers through our disruption tactics and community awareness events
BUYING SEX CAN COST MORE THAN JUST POCKET CHANGE!
Commercial sex hurts more than you can imagine.
If buyers can’t care about the victimization of their purchase, perhaps we can make them care about their own wellbeing, their family and their livelihood.
Arrests are routinely being made in our state. Buyers who engage in commercial sex with a minor may be charged with 10-20 years imprisonment, subject to a maximum fine of $150,000, asset forfeiture an order of restitution and required to register as a sex offender.

There are three dynamic ways Arizona men can get in this fight
Actively disrupt the online sex market.
Join an elite team of men who have learned how to personally engage online sex buyers directly at the point of sale. You’ll be supported by The Just.Men.Arizona Project and its cutting-edge intervention tactic for disrupting the online exploitation market. This program has seen multiple iterations and improvements over nearly 4 years of real-world testing. It has resulted in over 100,000 disruptions of online sex buying and contributed to the arrest and conviction of dozens of high frequency buyers.
Directly confront the proliferation of illicit massage parlors.
This is a strategy aimed at exposing and putting community pressure on property owners where known illicit massage parlors operate. This is an aggressive letter writing campaign with phone follow up to property owners that puts them on notice that there are men in their communities that are aware of and in opposition to these businesses.
Learn how to harness the power of social media to amplify your voice to speak out against gendered violence and sexual exploitation.
Attend an educational program aimed at training men’s groups on the causes and solutions for sexual injustice that includes but is not limited to commercial sexual exploitation. Then learn how to leverage social media to make your voice loud and clear.
