Every year, more than 100,000 children are sold for sex in the United States. Over 60 percent of trafficked children are under the age of 16, with the average age a child enters into sexual slavery being only 13 years old. They are repeatedly raped and beaten, advertised on theinternet, and are twice as likely to suffer from PTSD as soldiers in a war zone. Yet, through education we will end exploitation.
To help keep our children safe, sign and share this petition demanding that Congress mandate sex trafficking prevention lessons in our nation's schools. Exploitation begins with our children. Click here and sign the petition.
