Imagine 500
average-sized US middle schools
are turned into brothels…

where all the students are exploited
through prostitution, pornography,
and sex entertainment…

**This is reality: 100,000-300,000 US citizens or permanent residents under the age of 18 years
are exploited for commercial sex every year**

Why the pimps get away with it?
• The average age of entry into prostitution in the US is 13.
• The sex industry is booming with annual profits of $57+ billion dollars worldwide. The demand is high in the US where there are more strip clubs than in any other country.
• The same child can be sold for sex over and over unlike drugs and weapons which can only be sold once. Children for sex are a profitable commodity.

How they get away with it?
• The commercial sex acts are induced by force, fraud and/or coercion:
 FORCE: beatings, confinement, over-powering
 FRAUD: false/deceptive promises, lies, grooming with “love” and attention
 COERCION: threat to family, threat of criminal process, drugs

What are we doing to protect our children?
 The US does not have a functioning system or network to address this horrific reality.
 There are only about 100 safe beds in the nation for these victims to heal and recover

The solution?

The DMST Deterrence and Victims Support Act (S. 596) is currently sitting in Committee in the US Senate and if passed would establish a block grant program for comprehensive, victim-centered approach to addressing the sex trafficking of minors.

Have the Political and Financial Will to
Pass The D MST Deterrence and Victims Support Act (S. 596)
to protect the next generation of US citizens from being
victims of sex trafficking….

If we don’t pay the price, our children will!
