Our Mission

The Demand Project (TDP) exists to eradicate human trafficking, online enticement, child sexual abuse material, and the commercial sexual exploitation of children.


Our Strategy 

TDP’s strategy for fighting these crimes is the Prevention of victimization through awareness and education; the Protection of victims/survivors by providing access to quality attorneys, restorative justice, and pursuing civil litigation; to assist law enforcement with the Recovery of victims by providing Victim Advocate Support Teams; and the Restoration of survivors by empowering them to choose their own Journey to Freedom through the non-residential and residential Journey to Freedom Program.

The Demand Project is a 501(c)(3) organization. Your donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by the IRS.

Our Story

In 2013, Jason Weis and Kristin Weis founded The Demand Project to address the multifaceted fight against human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children. They wanted to start an organization that not only addressed the crimes against children by partnering with law enforcement, but also the prevention of victimization through education, and the restoration journey for survivors. They have since pioneered an organization and formed a passionate team of professionals that do just that, collaborating with the community on a local, state, and national level.
