Join Glendene as she talks with the founders of M.A.S.T. (Men Against Sexual Trafficking) 

Men Against Sexual Trafficking (MAST) is a London, Ontario, Canada-based organization that opposes human trafficking by educating men on the issue and encouraging them to stop buying sexual services provided by human trafficking victims. It was founded by Stan Burditt. 

Membership in the organization is not restricted by sex, age, ethnic group, or religion.

In 2011, two weeks after the Western Fair District denied The Everything to do with Sex Show a lease to their Progress Building, MAST appeared with two other organizations, the London Abused Women's Centre and Stop P0rn Culture, before the Community and Neighbourhoods Committee of the London City Council to ask the London Public Library to stop p0rnography from being viewable on public computers and to ask the city to ban p0rnography-industry organizations from holding events in city-funded venues. The committee did not allow these three organizations' presentation to be on the public agenda; only the committee members saw the presentation. The presentation convinced the committee to support the two proposed courses of action. Mental health professional Dan Lenart opposed the proposal to put content-control software on computers in public libraries, calling the software an "attack on the poor and impoverished". 

In 2012, MAST partnered with the London Anti-Human Trafficking Committee to host a human trafficking seminar called "One Voice One Hope", and later to host the 2012 London performances of Andrew Kooman's She Has a Name, a play about sexual trafficking.
