The Fort Worth Club



The Net’s initiative PURCHASED seeks to empower women and girls who have experienced sexual exploitation right here in Fort Worth, to walk in freedom. We create pathways to freedom and hope through a continuum of care focusing on prevention, intervention, and restoration. By participating in PURCHASED and its relationally based programs, a growing number of women in our city now have the opportunity to completely escape and recover from sexual exploitation.
 
We will gather downtown at the Fort Worth Club for our third annual Survivor Leader Luncheon. Attendees have the opportunity to meet survivor leaders who have been directly impacted by The NET. Men & women are welcome to attend.

Tomas Perez
 
President and 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.

Special Guests
