Traffickinghub History and Evolution

Traffickinghub was founded by Laila Mickelwait in February 2020 and advanced in conjunction with Exodus Cry, quickly becoming a global movement of individuals and organizations across a broad spectrum of political, faith and non-faith, economic, and ideological backgrounds, uniting together for the single purpose of holding Pornhub accountable for enabling, distributing and profiting from real mass sexual crime.

Traffickinghub has been endorsed by over 300 anti-trafficking, women’s rights, and child protection organizations around the world. Over 600 organizations have joined forces to call for criminal accountability for Pornhub and its parent company MindGeek, along with over 200 survivors, and over two million people from 192 countries have signed the Traffickinghub movement petition.

In a relatively short amount of time Traffickinghub has made enormous progress thanks to the work and participation of all involved. In January 2020, Pornhub was the largest and most popular porn website in the world, the 10th most visited website across the Internet (more than Netflix, Amazon, or Yahoo), and the third most influential tech company on society only surpassed by Facebook and Google. By January 2021, Pornhub deleted 80% of the site totaling 10 million videos, lost all payment processing (MasterCard, Visa, Discover and PayPal), upended its business model and is now a global pariah—facing 7 major lawsuits and under investigation by multiple governments for child sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and other illegal activity.

Laila Mickelwait continues to lead the Traffickinghub movement today and is determined to do so until its goals are accomplished. You can stay up to date on the progress of Traffickinghub by following the #Traffickinghub hashtag or by following Laila Mickelwait on Twitter.
