Laws play a vital role in abolishing slavery.

We engage governments by advocating for legal reform, both domestically and internationally.

How laws can end the sex industry.


The Law Reform Team from Exodus Cry works with governments and legislators in the United States and in nations around the world. The goal is to promote and implement legislation which will uproot the commercial sex industry, end sex trafficking, and bring justice to victims and perpetrators.

We engage governments by advocating for legal reform, both domestically and internationally. History has shown that government support plays a vital role in abolishing slavery. We are asking political powers to enact and enforce laws that will work toward the abolition of the commercial sex industry and as a result, reduce and eliminate sex trafficking. This is absolutely necessary for the perpetuation of freedom in society.

Our reform efforts include:

Shifting mindsets by educating legislators

Shifting mindsets by educating legislators

We host screenings of Nefarious: Merchant of Souls, conduct briefings, and present information to legislators in order to educate them about the issue of sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation, offering ways to eradicate it. We want legislators to understand that prostitution is not a job but rather a form of violence against women and children. We back this claim with credible research and fact-based evidence.


Advocating for the adoption of new laws

Advocating for the adoption of new laws

We seek to prevent the perpetuation of sex trafficking and abolish the commercial sex industry globally by advocating for specific laws and policies that reduce the demand for commercial sex. Our team examines existing laws and looks for ways to improve them. They also help to draft new legislation aimed at the abolition of the commercial sex industry.


Creating resources

Creating Resources

We provide legislators with expert testimony and the resources and research to help them present a convincing case before their fellow legislators. We also offer screenings of our award-winning documentaries at governmental hearings.

Does legal reform actually work?

Legal reform today plays a vital role in the abolition of sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.

Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist William Wilberforce were two of the most impactful figures in the abolition movement of the 1800’s. Their lives were dedicated to the passing of laws that abolished institutionalized slavery, and their legacy proves the power of law in shifting society. Effective laws and their uncompromising enforcement play an irreplaceable role in establishing and preserving freedom.
