WHAT IS HEMAD?
HEMAD is an award-winning campaign to motivate men to take a public stand against the commercial sex trade and human trafficking. The campaign is spreading across the country and around the world through social media. So far, more than 65,000 men have taken the HEMAD (Human trafficking Educators working with Men and boys to stand Against the Demand) pledge.
Human sex trafficking is a growing problem here in Wisconsin. A study from the Medical College of Wisconsin found that in the City of Milwaukee alone there were 340 people believed to be victims between 2013 and 2016. The National Trafficking Hotline also reported 134 cases in Wisconsin in 2018.
Our goal this year is 75,000 men worldwide. It is important to every woman that every man take this pledge. Join the movement and help us make history.
