Dear friends,
Welcome to the first edition of the Coalition for the Abolition of Prostitution's monthly updates!
We are excited to share what our movement has been working on recently. As this is our first bulletin, we cover a couple months' worth of news. We welcome the passing of an abolitionist law in France, cover our members' and CAP Intl's participation at the Commission on the Status of Women, CAP Intl's involvement in Yazidi rights activist and ISIL survivor Nadia Murad's advocacy tour in Paris, and more.
CAP International is a coalition of fourteen frontline NGOs providing direct assistance to victims of sexual exploitation.
