“Have you ever heard of the issue of human sex trafficking?”
The trailer for the documentary “Sex + Money” opens by asking this question. Most people don’t know or don’t understand the scope of the problem. Most people who have heard of sex trafficking couldn’t possibly imagine it happening here … not in America, no way.
It is here. It is in every city across the U.S. If you can’t find it in one location, you just aren’t looking hard enough.
In 2011, five young journalists set off on a mission across the United States. They were on a mission to spread awareness about domestic minor sex trafficking by hosting screenings of the “Sex + Money” documentary.
Shared Hope partnered with the Sex + Money team to raise state grades through the Protected Innocence ChallengeReport Cards. Together we have started a wildfire of states introducing and enacting laws and legislation that will help rescue, restore, protect, and defend girls — while strengthening laws that serve justice to traffickers.
Will you join us? Will you watch the video and be inspired to action? Or will you brush it off? You can make a difference. Together, we can change the world.
