Right after the Superbowl, an event that's been incorrectly called the biggest human trafficking day of the year for almost a decade—the Washington Examiner published Mickelwait's op-ed titled " Time to shut Pornhub down ." In that piece, she used recent incidents of exploitative content on one of the most popular porn platforms on the internet to argue that Pornhub should be shut down entirely. She highlighted videos that led to the arrest of a rapist after he uploaded child porn of his victim to the site, as well as the Girls Do Porn lawsuit .

Laila Mickelwait's timing was perfect. It was, in some ways, inevitable that her " TraffickingHub " campaign to shut down Pornhub would go viral when it launched in February.

Exodus Cry's website states that it uses funding to change laws that will "end the sex industry," and "works with governments and legislators... to implement legislation that creates criminal culpability for sex buyers, pimps, and traffickers, and brings freedom and support to victims."
