It is not unusual for a teen selling sex to deny that she’s working for someone else, even if against her will. However, that is exactly what’s going on.
Due to the increase in internet sites offering young girls for escort services, among other things, this problem continues to grow.
Here is the bottom line that the community needs to understand:
“People who are having sex with children are not “Johns” and “Tricks”. They are child rapists and pedophiles, so we should call then what they are.” - Jada Pinkett Smith
Besides the abduction of children (some as young as 8 or 10 years old), there is the luring of teens via the internet by so-called friends or boyfriends expressing interest in the child. The abductors and pimps are not always the same person, but the result is the same. A child or teen is forced to have sex against his/her will with strangers for payment.
The pimps in our area are making $35,000 per week! By selling CHILDREN.
So, we are on a mission to educate the public about human trafficking in the United States. This growing multi-billion-dollar industry is a cancer growing in our society which must be eradicated.
The assumption has been that the person selling themselves for sex, was doing so of their own accord and free will. Yet sex with children and teens does not fall into this category.
What discernment or discretion does a 14 or 16-year-old have, especially with threatened harm to themselves or their loved ones?
Slavery was wrong before the emancipation proclamation, and it is still wrong today.
We are asking our friends, family members and anyone who will listen to help us make an impact on our culture.
As we move forward with this critical mission of Advocating, Educating and Collaborating with others - all we ask is that you lend your support by shopping online from our website and encouraging others to do the same.
Will you help us to rehabilitate these victims today?! Or will you continue to sit on the sidelines while they continue in slavery?
