A local non-profit is doing their part in the fight against human trafficking by calling on men to end the demand for sex slaves.

"Unearth", a religiously based organization uses videos directed to all men, to be the change in the system that sexually exploits millions of women around the world, and in the United States.

Unearth Executive Director Tony Anderson says all the focus has been trying to rescue the 20 to 30 million women world wide being trafficked, but says they want to focus on attacking the root of the problem...men willing to pay for sex.

Unearth believes the media's portrayal of women as 'sexual objects,' specifically in  the adult entertainment industry, eventually plays into the psyche of men. They feel men begin to think its okay to view women as sexual objects.

Anderson says its important to start educating the younger generations on human trafficking, which is a main focal point for Unearth.
