The Indian Immoral Traffic Prevention Act has been failing to protect girls and women from sex trafficking. It criminalizes and stigmatizes trafficking victims and allows the true perpetrators of crime - traffickers, pimps, johns - to exploit women and children with impunity.

Join the members of Apne Aap Women Worldwide in a global call to change outdated policies and empower women and girls.

We appeal to the President of India for a law that prohibits the purchase of sexual services and addresses the root cause of prostitution and sex trafficking: the demand and men who assume the right to buy and sell human beings for sexual exploitation.

Together, we can end sex trafficking.
