Sex trafficking is a global phenomenon that must be stopped.
“Every year, 1.2 million children are sold into sex trafficking. About 250,000 of those children are sold for sex in the United States.”
This is shocking.
According to the International Labour Organization, as many as 4.5 million people of all ages were forced into sex work between 2011 and 2012. As a definition, sex trafficking is the sexual exploitation of people for profit, as Sarah Kollmorgen explains in an article for Fair Observer.
