A Congressional Briefing: American Child are being Sold for Sex

American children are being sold for sex to American men in the hundreds of thousands every single day. This is child sex trafficking – the victimization of a child through prostitution, pornography or sexual entertainment. It happens in every state, every day. It’s time to face the crisis that is stealing the lives of our nation’s children.

Shared Hope International will publicly release The National Report on Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking: America’s Prostituted Children on July 21, 2009, at a Congressional Human Trafficking Briefing sponsored by the Caucus on Victims’ Rights and the Caucus on Human Trafficking. The findings and recommendations from Shared Hope International’s National Report will be revealed at the Briefing on July 21. The magnitude of the problem will be brought to light, as America’s modern-day slavery is exposed in the faces of children.

**The National Report on Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking will be made available for download on Tuesday. Check to download your copy.
