WHO WE ARE

 

The California Commission on Sexual Exploitation employs a groundbreaking, trauma-informed, treatment oriented effort to end all forms of sexual perpetration by promoting accountability. We engage multiple sectors of society to end the harmful practice of sex buying, sexual offending, and any other forms of deviant sexual behavior by shifting social and cultural norm.

MISSION & VISION STATEMENTS

Our Mission

We aim to reduce criminal behavior by the application of evidence-based and trauma-informed services that address the culture and institutions that profit from, perpetrate, or promote sexual violence.

Our Vision

Our vision is to facilitate prevention strategies, restoration programs, and justice initiatives innovatively improving the response to all forms of sexual exploitation. We believe we can establish supportive communities where all individuals have access to empathetic and knowledgeable professionals, an alert and nurturing community, just law and policy, trauma-informed service providers, and achievable quality of life options.

WHAT WE DO

Addressing those that PROFIT FROM SEXUAL EXPLOITATION

There is a strong relationship between socially prescribed or tolerated attitudes and practices, and sexual exploitation.  Sexual exploitation encompasses the identities, attitudes, and motivations of those who sexually exploit children and adults in non-commercial settings; in the commercial sex industry; and in the context of more diffuse and long-term sexual-economic relationships. We seek resolve on the challenges, as well as passionately pursue a culture shift, from the popular and widely endorsed beliefs about sexuality, gender, race, class, caste, childhood, economic life and/or prostitution that exploiters of all types draw upon to rationalize and defend their actions.

Addressing those that PERPETRATE SEXUAL OFFENDING

The dynamics of sexual victimization and sex offending are multifaceted. We support state and local jurisdictions in the effective management of sex offenders under community supervision. Our primary goal is to enhance public safety by preventing further victimization through improving the management of adult and juvenile sex offenders. Responding effectively to sex offending requires involvement from a wide range of disciplines and agencies. We employ specialized components to manage known offenders as a means to prevent future sexual victimization.

Addressing those that PROMOTE SEX TRAFFICKING 

We all play a role in the demand for sex trafficking: from the products we consume to the decisions we make on a daily basis. Our demand reduction programs and efforts drive cultural change to end sex trafficking, starting with individual actions. If we can reduce the demand for sex trafficking, we can also reduce the supply of victims.

OUR VALUES

 

As Christian advocates, we believe all people deserve the opportunity to be restored to dignity and purpose, regardless of their faith or system of belief.

As Christian stewards, we prayerfully use wisdom and Biblical guidance for all things placed under our authority and all things we have influence over.

As Christian leaders, we seek to inspire change by informing through education, and empowering through transformation.
