I highly recommend joining this free, phone conference call. Few subjects need more attention in American today than this. Sexual exploitation is destroying lives of young and old alike–the victims and the perpetrators are both being damaged for many years, if not for life, by this hideous, evil and sinful practice
Let’s pray and work to protect our communities–especially our girls!

Something unthinkable just a year or two ago — something miraculous — has happened in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Senate voted overwhelmingly last Wednesday, 97-2, to overturn a series of U.S. court cases that sheltered online sex traffickers like websites Backpage and craigslist. In the most tortured reasoning, courts have ruled that those websites, and dozens more like them, had the right to promote sex trafficking and the federal and state governments could do little about it.
But the bill’s supporters, despite heavily funded opposition from Google and other top tech companies, prevailed, and the bill is going to the president’s desk, where he is expected to sign it.
Patrick Trueman is a former Chief of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Criminal Division at the U. S. Department of Justice from 1988 to 1993.
While at DOJ, Mr. Trueman supervised the prosecution of child sex crimes, child pornography, and obscenity. He managed an office of twenty of prosecutors and support staff, and worked with the nation’s 93 United States Attorneys to initiate and coordinate federal prosecutions.
During his 41 years as a lawyer, he litigated cases at all levels of the federal system, including at the U.S. Supreme Court. He has been an advisor to many municipalities on First Amendment law and has helped draft ordinances to end or curb the impact of sexually oriented businesses such as pornography shops, strip clubs, and related establishments. A recognized international expert, Mr. Trueman has traveled to Europe, South America, the Middle East, and other areas to speak about human trafficking or the effects of television sex and violence on the family.
As president of NCOSE, Patrick Trueman spearheads efforts to change corporate policies by publicizing a Dirty Dozen List. This aggressive project educates company executives, galvanizes public attention and spurs popular actions to defend human dignity. Under his leadership, NCOSE has produced policy improvements at a wide range of notable institutions, including Google, Wal-Mart, the Department of Justice, Verizon, the Federal Communications Commission and more.
In 2015, Mr. Trueman established the NCOSE Law Center, which serves as a resource for legal efforts to combat illegal pornography, sexually oriented businesses, and to bring innovative lawsuits against public institutions facilitating sexual exploitation. In 2010, he founded PornHarmsResearch.com to provide peer-reviewed research and talking points on the harms of pornography.
On a global level, Mr. Trueman leads NCOSE’s Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation, an international coalition that boasts nearly 300 organizations and academic experts who are committed to sharing strategies and resources for combating public & private harms caused by pornography.
Mr. Trueman served as chief of staff to a Member of the U.S. Congress. From 1976 to 1982, he was Executive Director and General Counsel to Americans United for Life, a national public interest law firm in Chicago.
He lives just outside Washington, D.C., and is married to Laura Clay Trueman. Laura and Pat Trueman have three children: Patrick, Claire and Elizabeth.
