Human trafficking is the 3rd highest international crime. The WCMS Foundation is concerned that in order to make a dent in this crime, the men who buy sex or "Johns" must be made to bear the consequences of their action. 

With this regard, we are raising money for a 50 minute documentary on Men Who Buy Sex. We plan to show this program to Michigan legislature and get strict laws passed that will hold the johns accountable, and decrease the incidence of human trafficking. 

We are asking the members of WCMSSM to contribute to this appeal and encourage outreach to colleagues, friends, family, and organizations who would be willing to donate to this worthy cause.
