Let's get the terminology correct...kids aren't child prostitutes. They are trafficking victims. Here one lady's story.

I received a moving email the other day from a trafficking survivor.  This brave young woman's words brought tears to my eyes and I wanted to share her story, while protecting her privacy.

Hi Lucia,

"As a victim myself, I still struggle (all these years later) with the stigma attached to me. I was extremely fortunate, got out of the lifestyle alive, but... I think one major (major) hurdle is getting society to see the trafficked people as victims and not perpetrators of crime or vice. I didn't wake up one day and think "gee it would be fun to go out and turn tricks" at 15 years of age. I was tricked into it by someone who said they were my "friend" and I have lived with the consequences of societies general ignorance and apathy since. I applaud other survivors/victims who speak openly about their experiences, your bravery inspires me and I am choosing to NO LONGER live in silence and hide the past. Thank you Lucia."

Human trafficking has been referred to as "modern-day slavery" and involves the domestic or international recruiting, transporting and harboring of people for forced labor exploitation and is unlike human smuggling, where people pay someone to bring them into the country illegally.  Please sign our online petition to stop human slavery and trafficking.
