Stop Child Trafficking Now (also called SCTNow) is an international organization[1] founded by Lynette Lewis, an author and public speaker.[2] This nonprofit organization[3] engages in advocacy work in an attempt to bring an end to the trafficking of children.[4] SCTNow targets the demand for human trafficking, focusing on pedophiles, child abductions and child pornography.[5] The group seeks to have those who sexually abuse children prosecuted and convicted.[6] The organization organizes a walk each year to raise awareness on the issue.[7] The first walk took place in September 2011 in Augusta, Georgia, United States.[8] SCTNow events have been held in more than 35 cities in the United States.[9] The group organized a protest at Phillips Square, Montreal, Quebec, Canada in September 2009.[10] Sherrie Clark volunteers for the organization as an editor and writer.[1]
