Tens of thousands of youth are at risk of sexual exploitation this year: children who live in your neighborhoods, children you pass on the street every day.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, nearly 85% of victims in confirmed sex trafficking cases are U.S. citizens - mostly homeless kids. While often perceived as an international issue, American children are being trafficked throughout our country every day.
Tell Congress to protect these vulnerable children!
Tragically, these kids are easy targets for pimps and traffickers because many have no place to run... no home to shelter them from danger. In order to fight this horrific epidemic, we must provide safe housing for the thousands of homeless kids who are living in danger of sexual exploitation right now.
Urge Congress to prioritize safe housing for homeless youth so that they can live a life without constant fear of sexual exploitation- and focus on being kids.
We can no longer stand by as children are sexually exploited and forced into prostitution.
The majority of children forced into sexual slavery are homeless. They have nowhere to turn and very little chance for survival without our help.
As many as 40,000 kids are trafficked within our own borders each year. It's only getting worse as the Internet has made it easier for predators to meet children and profit by forcing them into sexual servitude.
Pleas prioritize legislation that will provide safe housing for homeless children. We can't let one more child be forced into a life of prostitution.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
