Survivor Leader Luncheon

Survivor Leader Luncheon - Fight Sex Trafficking In Fort Worth | The Net

For the Survivor Leader Luncheon, we will gather in downtown Fort Worth at the Fort Worth Club where attendees will have the opportunity to spend time with survivor leaders who have been directly impacted by The Net.

Both men & women are encouraged to attend.

The annual Survivor Leader Luncheon is an extension of The Net’s Purchase program, which seeks to empower women & girls who have experienced sexual exploitation right here in Fort Worth to walk in freedom. This event is a celebration of the great work everyone involved in Purchased is doing, as well as an opportunity to learn and be inspired by some amazing speakers, led by keynote speaker Tomas Perez.

Keynote Speaker

Tomas Perez
President & Founder: The Epik Project

Tom is a proud dad with three grown daughters, a grandson. He spent nearly 30 years as a pastor, small business owner, and non-profit leader. In 2010, Tom began engaging in the anti-trafficking fight and quickly noticed that while men are the primary drivers behind demand, very few were practically involved in the fight to abolish it.

The "Everyman Protecting Innocent Kids" or EPIK Project is his attempt to bring men to this fight, thereby helping to end demand for prostituted persons. Through an innovative and creative partnership with Portland Police and the Multnomah County DA's office, Tom has led a nearly all-volunteer effort that has succeeded in disrupting more than 90,000 sex buyer purchase attempts in just over 4 years. By training men how to engage local sex buyers directly at the point of sale, Tom’s work has helped to successfully disrupt the local online market for illegal sex.

EPIK’s work has been replicated in 9 cities across the country with Dallas and Ft. Worth on that list. He believes that while men create the demand that drives sex trafficking, Better Men will end that demand.
