Introduction to EACPs

The Association Action Against Pimping Teams(EACP) was founded by Jean SCELLES in 1956 and it was in 1970 that it was recognized as a public utility by the government. Under the impetus of President Jean SCELLES, it was the initiator of afundamental law for the fight against pimping, the law n° 75-229 of April 9, 1975. Its action consists in carrying the voice of the victims by fighting directly against procuring by means of two essential missions, one legal, the other social.

Today, the Association is chaired by Elda CARLY. It has a team of 23 volunteer lawyers  as well as a social worker, psychologists, lawyers, etc.

To date, more than3,000 legal files were treated thanks to the action of these teams.
