Today I was very proud to be able to share the stage with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, as she announced indictments against five different sex traffickers here in my home state. The Attorney General is a tireless champion for ending exploitation inherent to the illegal sex trade. And as an expert in this field she also knows that to truly eradicate commercial sexual exploitation law enforcement cannot just go after traffickers, but sex buyers as well. Their money is what fuels these criminal networks, and without it the entire, predatory system shuts down.

Working alongside people like the Attorney General is inspiring, and reminds me of why I got in this line of work to begin with: to help people and create, better, safer communities free from exploitation and harm.
