‘Dirty Dozen List’ names 12 companies profiting off sexual exploitation
The National Center on Sexual Exploitation has released its annual Dirty Dozen list that documents how 12 entities are profiting off sexually exploitative practices.
Released Tuesday, the list includes companies that NCOSE believes are “fueling sexual exploitation through their business practices, policies and products,” according to Lina Nealon, the director of corporate and strategic initiatives.
The list does not include businesses and other enterprises that are making improvements but are still being monitored by NCOSE.
“Children and marginalized people, in particular, are being harmed at record numbers due to increased vulnerabilities created by the pandemic — yet corporations continue watching profits skyrocket without prioritizing user protection and well-being,” Nealon said in a statement released last month.
“We cannot allow this reality to go unchallenged, and our annual Dirty Dozen List advocates for crucial changes toward corporate social responsibility,” she added.
Here are the 12 entities listed on the 2022 Dirty Dozen List. They include a domain name company, a popular social media site, the dominant internet search engine, and a prominent Christian sports camp.
