A creative arm of the Traffickinghub Campaign (powered by Exodus Cry), #ARTXFREEDOM exists to gather and join forces with artists to fight a battle against sexual exploitation.

This fight is to hold Pornhub accountable for enabling and financially profiting off of videos of real sex-trafficking, child sexual abuse and other non consensual content. Over one million individuals from 192 countries have signed our Traffickinghub Petition. Join this movement. Lend the power and passion of your art to the fight for freedom.

Art Changes Culture

From the abolition of the trans-atlantic slave trade in the 1800s to the campaign against Big Tobacco and the harms of smoking, these campaigns helped to shift public opinion worldwide. Compelling visual imagery is an integral part of telling stories and helping people understand the message. This results in mindset changes which lead to cultural shifts that demand new laws and regulations, as together we fight for a more just world.
