Human Trafficking & Sex Trafficking . . . an American Problem?

Human Trafficking is the 2nd largest and fastest growing 
industry in the world today.

80-90% of human trafficking is sex trafficking.

80% of victims are female & 50% are children.

2 million children a year are forced into the sex industry every year.

It is estimated between 100,000 - 300,000 minors a year are being 
forced into sex trafficking in the USA.

In the USA, the average age of entry into prostitution is 13 years old.

The top recruiting areas for domestic minor sex trafficking is the Internet, 
malls, movie theaters, schools, and bus stops. 

66-90% of adult sex workers were sexually abused &/or exploited as children.

What's being done about this?
