Round-up of 2016 and a sneak peak into the year ahead.
Dear partners and friends,

2016 has been a busy year for our coalition:
- from numerous joint actions and domestic advocacy support with our members in India, Latvia, Lebanon, Mexico, Spain, UK, USA ... including welcoming the new French law on prostitution;

- to international advocacy through the organisation of popular UN side-events, the publication of a human rights paper and joint contributions to UN bodies; 
- to co-sponsoring an abolitionist forum in Mexico in a joint action with partners;
- to strengthening our communications through the publication of an intro brochure, infographics, the establishment of this newsletter...
...and much more! 

Peruse the Actions section of our website to learn more about our activities this year.

CAP International is a coalition of
fourteen frontline NGOs providing direct assistance to victims of sexual exploitation. 
For a sneak peak of what is in store for 2017, learn more about the CAP International congress taking place 29 - 31 January and have a look at the programme for the Commission on the Status of Women 61, which CAP International will be participating in. 

Wishing you all the best in 2017,
CAP International Secretariat
