Join A Women’s Circle (347.855.8118 @ 7:30 EST) as we discuss Sex trafficking with expert Deena Graves Sex trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which girls and women perform commercial sex through the use of force, fraud, or coercion. Poverty, gender-based discrimination and a history of sexual and physical violence are all factors that can make women and children vulnerable to traffickers. Sex traffickers frequently target victims and then use violence, threats, lies, false promises, debt bondage, or other forms of control and manipulation to keep victims involved in the sex industry for their own profit. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, there are estimated to be at least 100,000 American children trafficked for sex each year. They are abducted or lured by traffickers who prey on their trust. They are routinely raped, beaten into submission, and when they try to run away, the traffickers will often torture or gang rape them. Or both.
