From our colleagues:

“I used the work of PRE for a task force on police responses to prostitution and to educate interns.”  

“I have used PRE’s work for speaking out as a survivor. PRE’s research confirmed what I knew—women in prostitution suffer from the same symptoms of trauma as victims of state-sponsored torture. It became so much easier to speak out because I could refer to this study. PRE’s work put a floor beneath me—they gave me a place to stand.”

“I used the work of PRE for teaching a class on the Psychology of Trauma.”

“I used the work of PRE to explain the harms of sex slavery in different countries I visited when I was Director of the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons at the United States Department of State.”

“I used the work of PRE to show how prostitution affects native peoples.”

“PRE’s role is essential. What gets measured gets done. We are able to have real discussions about prostitution and trafficking because there exists a serious research arm to this work.”
