Today Annie Abram and her guest, David Trotter, will discuss sex trafficking in the US. There are "100,000 children in the sex trade in the United States each year. In the US, sex trafficking commonly occurs in online escort services, residential brothels, brothels disguised as massage businesses or spas, and in street prostitution. Victims are frequently lured by false promises of a lucrative job, stability, education, or a loving relationship. In the U.S., victims can be men or women, adults or children, foreign nationals or U.S. citizens. While they share the trait of vulnerability, victims have diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, varied levels of education, and may be documented or undocumented."

Leah grew up very poor with her brother & sister. Leah would watch her mother endure physical and substance abuse daily.
Leah's mother discovered she was being raped by the neighbor's husband and sent Leah to Arizona to meet her father for the first time. She just didn't seem to fit into her father's new family he had already established with another woman. She was awarded to the state after her father called the police for pulling a knife out on him after he grabbed her violently.
Leah began stripping to maintain a livable lifestyle in Arizona for her three children. It was there that she'd met an amazing guy.
They started dating and it wasn't until he had her isolated during a trip to California that he identified he was a pimp. A violent one!
She made a vow to God pleading for her life as a john was raping her at gunpoint, she cried out, "God if you can just get me out of this, I promise I won't go back into this lifestyle".
And boy he sure got her out of there. He sent her right to jail. It was then that she began walking into her destiny, by using her story to help other women from falling into the same trap she did. Leah thought she'd never see freedom or have a normal life. But God had other plans.
Leah has now written a book called, Game Over: The Story Behind a Sex Trafficking Victim, being released May 13th, 2015.

About today's guest:
Dana World-Patterson has devoted nearly twenty-five years to teaching etiquette & image and has served thousands of individuals through her love to see people be better. The past six years has been a deep dive in eradicating human trafficking.
Her journey began as she noticed the rising anger in girls she encountered through her etiquette trainings. After months of observations, she asked a group of 15 girls she was mentoring, 'how many of them had been touched inappropriately?', and to her dismay 14 of the 15 raised their hands. Although saddened and hurt, a very important piece of the puzzle was revealed. The anger was a cry for help.
Amidst growing awareness of human sex trafficking, Dana joined forces as a founding member of the County Human Trafficking Task Force and when it sunset, she then transitioned as Chairperson of the Human Trafficking Task Force of Greater Milwaukee, an affiliate of the City of Milwaukee Commission on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. The HTTFGM is an assembling of like-minded individuals to be the community response to eradicating human trafficking.
Within this time, Dana World-Patterson, also established Foundations for Freedom, Inc., a 501c3, not-for-profit entity, that specializes in eradicating human trafficking through advocacy, education, and awareness; while addressing vulnerabilities and building confidence in women and girls.
For additional information, call the National Hotline at 888.373.7888, or email Dana World-Patterson at: Foundations4Freedominc@gmail.com.
Human trafficking is the modern form of slavery, with illegal smuggling and trading of people, for forced labor or sexual exploitation.
Trafficking is officially defined as: the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons by means of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, or abuse of power of a position of vulnerability for the purpose of exploitation. Human trafficking is not synonymous with forced migration or smuggling.
In the U.S., human trafficking tends to occur around international travel-hubs with large immigrant populations, notably California and Texas. The U.S. Justice Department estimates that 17,500 people are trafficked into the country every year, but the true figure could be higher, because of the large numbers of undocumented immigrants. Those being trafficked include young children, teenagers, men and women and can be domestic citizens or foreign nationals. According to the Department of State's statistics from 2000, there are approximately 244,000 American children and youth that are at risk for sex trafficking each year. Of these children and youth, 38,600 were originally runaways.
