In 2012, the FBI estimated that 293,000 American children were at risk of being exploited and trafficked for sex. In the past, trafficking meant illegal immigrants who were forced into prostitution by human smugglers. Now, 83% of the victims are American citizens, the majority between the ages of 12 and 14. This modern day slavery needs a modern day movement of abolitionists. We, as a nation, must join this battle to free the victims and put an end to this violation of humanity.
