About Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation

CAASE addresses the culture, institutions, and individuals that perpetrate, profit from, or support sexual exploitation. Our work includes prevention, policy reform, community engagement, and legal services.

End Demand Illinois: A Local Campaign with National Influence

CAASE is the lead agency for End Demand Illinois (EDI), a multi-year statewide campaign that seeks to transform our community’s response to prostitution. EDI is working to end the routine arrest and re-arrest of women and girls in prostitution and instead proposes a statewide system of supportive services for survivors of the sex trade. In addition, EDI advocates for new tools and resources to allow law enforcement to begin arresting, charging, and prosecuting pimps, traffickers, and customers who create the demand for the sex trade. Illinois is receiving national attention for these innovative approaches.

The goals of End Demand Illinois are:

Holding traffickers, pimps, and the people who buy commercial sex accountable for their crimes and deterring them from future trafficking and prostitution offenses.

Proposing a network of support so prostituted and trafficked people receive comprehensive, specialized supportive services to address their complex needs and provide meaningful alternatives to prostitution.

Educating Illinois residents, elected officials, policy makers, and opinion leaders about the realities of prostitution and trafficking so they are moved to take action against demand.
