Sex Trafficking/CSE Facts: 
  • In 2016, an estimated 1 out of 6 endangered runaways reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were likely child sex trafficking victims .
  • Sex traffickers use violence, threats, lies, debt bondage, and other forms of coercion to compel adults and children to engage in sex acts against their will. 
  • Many victims become romantically involved with someone who then forces or manipulates them into prostitution.
  • Sex trafficking occurs in a range of venues including fake massage businesses, via online ads or escort services, in residential brothels, on the street or at trucks stops, or at hotels and motels.



“Slowly, I'm beginning to realize that what happened to me wasn't my fault, that I was taken advantage of by a group of vile, twisted men.”

Understanding Survivors of Sex Trafficking
Prior to volunteering with or providing services to survivors of sex trafficking and other forms of commerical sexual exploitation it's critical to understand as much as possible about how women and children are impacted by the trauma intrinsic to their experences. The video on this page is one of the best educational tools I've ever seen toward that end. Please spend 20 minutes educating yourself. It may help you help a survivor.
