last week i had the awesome opportunity to attend a meeting put on by the non-profit 'for the silent.' for the silent's mission is to advocate for children silenced by sexual exploitation and trafficking. i am so glad i went to this meeting--i feel more informed about this issue and pressed to pray for victims of sex trafficking.
here are a few facts i would like to share with you...
child sex trafficking is modern day slavery in which children are sold, deceived, or forced into sexual exploitation.
it's estimated that 1.2 million children are trafficked every year.
13 is the average age of entry into prostitution.
human trafficking is the second most profitable crime in the world.
100,000 american children are trafficked in the US every year.
