The commercial sex industry of our youth is happening in every community.  Individuals, or gangs, are exploiting children by buying, trading or selling sexual acts with a child.  Sex trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purposes of a commercial sex act by force, fraud or coercion.  Pimps and traffickers target vulnerable children and lure them into prostitution and other forms of sexual exploitation using psychological manipulation, drugs, and/or violence.  Any child may be vulnerable to such a person who promises to meet his or her emotional and physical needs.  These children will remain loyal to the exploiter even in the face of severe victimization.  Gangs are moving towards selling children, which they see as a renewable commodity, rather than selling drugs. While sex trafficking is often viewed as an issue occurring outside of the United States- it is happening in our community - this program will address the local/regional dimensions of sex trafficking; risk factors for victimization; and, community response.
