Every one of us knows a little girl, one that is innocent and precious. However here in the United States, that innocence can be taken from a girl in the blink of an eye. Commercial sexual exploitation of children is one of the fastest growing human trafficking crimes in the world and is happening right here on our country. The traffickers target children due to their vulnerability and gullibility as well as the demand for young victims.
The children at risk are not just high school students—
studies demonstrate that pimps prey on victims as young as 12.
Most of you are probably thinking “not in my neighborhood” but you are wrong. Every year more than 50,000 women and children become victims of trafficking each year according to the Department of Justice. Just 200,000 children in the U.S. alone are at risk every year for commercial sexual exploitation.
The numbers are astounding; it is time to revolt for the victims of commercial sex trade.
Thousands need to be rescued and thousands need a place to call home.
