The ELCIC is called to oppose sexual exploitation in all its manifestations. This includes addressing social and economic injustices that leave people more vulnerable to exploitation.

As a church this means:

  • Being critical of messages, images, policies, and practices that diminish the dignity of individuals or groups
  • Journeying with, learning from, and advocating for those who have been exploited
  • Speaking out against people choosing to engage in exploitive behaviour
  • Learning effective ways to support those who are sincerely trying to repent of oppressive behaviour
  • Opposing all practices that turn the human body into a commodity to be bought and sold
  • Advocating for laws and policies that seek to prevent sexual exploitation in all its manifestations
