Sex Trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purposes of commercial sex acts. Women and children are caught in human trafficking all over the world, and right in our neighborhoods.
According to Destiny Rescue, a non-profit organization combatting human trafficking worldwide, there are an estimated 1.2 million children trafficked each year with the majority of them being lured, bribed, or forced into the sex trade. That's one child every 26 seconds!
