Special thanks for the generosity of Southwest Airlines in support of E3!



San Diego has
a problem.

Every year, thousands of people are sold for sex in our city. It’s called sex trafficking, and it’s happening now.

Research estimates sex trafficking is an $810 million business in San Diego, which ranks among the FBI’s top 13 cities for high intensity prostitution of children. Recruitment is happening online via social media as well as through local middle and high schools across San Diego county, in fact, the average age of recruitment is just 16.

San Diego is home to vulnerable populations and our children are at risk.


We need your help.

Government leaders, law enforcement and non-profit organizations are hard at work.

Eradicating sex trafficking requires a multi-sector response. With the support of the San Diego workforce, we have the power to make a measurable change.

We’ve saved your businesses a seat at the table.
