Human trafficking is the trade of humans, most commonly for sexual purposes, but for other reasons, too.
At this moment, there are more women and children sold into slavery than there were during the time of the transatlantic slave trade.
Sex trafficking can
be seen throughout the Sex Industry,
from fake message businesses
to online escorts.
Many people overlook this issue though.
When they walk by a prostitute in the street and the first thing most people think is she's out their by choice.
... and that she's also a dirty whore.
Most of us are in part to blame because we can all admit to ignoring that girl at the street corner.
Most people probably are going to wait for someone like authorities to intervene.
Interference from police usually does very little when you look at how large this industry is.
There are over 100,000 to 300,000
underage girls being sold
in America each year.
The average age of entry into prostitution
12 and 14 years of age.
50,000 women and children are being
trafficked into the States also each year.
1 out of every 3 teens on the street will
be lured into prostitution within
48 hours of running away from home.
Minor victims were sold
an average of 10 to 15 times a day,
6 days a week
1 out of 5 pornographic
images are of a child.
The sales of child pornography has become
a $3 billion industry.
Over 100,00 websites offer child pornography.
55% of internet child pornography comes from the US.
7 worst states in America when it comes to

Vice: Posing as a Prostitue
The life of a 14 Year Old in the Trade
A girl (whos name remains anonymous) left her parents house because she wasn't given enough attention from her parents.
She found a man who did though. Soon she ran away from him to conneticut where she met the rest of his family...
... The rest of his "family" turned out to be the other girls he lured.
After that day she worked on the street as a prostitute.
She and the others all had to make $500 a night or they were beaten which is exactly what happen to her on her first night, in front of the other girls to be used as an example not to happen again.
