The legislation signals the weight with which New York considers these crimes, and police and prosecutors across the state must meet the demand for fair and vigorous investigations that treat survivors with respect.

Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes remind us of how millions of women are exploited in the sex industry

Epstein’s crimes are sweeping and flagrant, but not drastically different from what commercial sexual exploitation looks like every single day in cities across America. Women and girls, mostly of color and poor, are bought and sold in a sex trade that targets and recruits the most vulnerable among us. Men, many rich and powerful, fuel the market for exploitation each time they exchange money for sexual access.
