The most dangerous time in a relationship is when a woman leaves

  • Volunteer your time or donate goods to your local domestic violence shelter.
  • Abuse to pets is a very real threat that can hinder a woman from leaving. A woman may stay rather than leave pets behind. Offer to temporarily take the pets in and care for them until she has secured housing that can accommodate pets. Most domestic violence shelters will not accept pets.

  • Email executives at MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and other major payment processing companies to demand they stop processing payments from the pornography industry. PayPal has led the industry by refusing to profit from Pornhub. Learn more here.
    • Update: As of December 10, 2020 Mastercard, Visa, and Discover have suspended payment transactions with Pornhub. American Express had already done so. This is significant progress against the trafficking industry and a demonstration that individuals and organizations can be effective. However, we must remain vocal and vigilant. Make sure these companies know you expect it to be a permanent action.You can find GGWW’s commentary on disrupting trafficking on our Chronicles page.
    • Second Update: Several more companies are refusing to do business or have an association with Pornhub. As of November 2, 2021 Visa, MasterCard, Discover, PayPal, Grant Thornton, Comcast/Xfinity, Heinz/Unilever, and Roku have cut ties.
    • Third Update: Instagram/Meta has shut down Pornhub’s Instagram account of over 13 million followers, a key form of advertising for their CSAM, trafficking, and abuse content.
  • The Traffickinghub campaign, founded by Laila Mickelwait and powered by the anti-trafficking organization Exodus Cry, is an effort to end the profiting from exploitation. Sign the petition.
  • Formerly known as MindGeek, the parent company of Pornhub and other adult websites, has rebranded with a new name: Aylo. The name change comes in the midst of several lawsuits alleging MindGeek of profiting from child pornography, sex trafficking, and nonconsensual content. Don’t let the term “nonconsensual content” slip by. That means recording rape and other violence and then profiting by distributing the recordings.
