It's National Human Trafficking Awareness Day!!
Today in the United States, it is estimated that 100,000 children annually are being lured into the commercial sex industry and sold for profit. While service providers often have the best access to the most at-risk and victimized youth in our communities, a lack of understanding of this issue coupled with inadequate training impedes the identification of exploited children. Visit the COA website at http://hosted-p0.vresp.com/364877/1182b59550/ARCHIVE for some awesome resources to learn, share and take action!
Looking Glass Community Services just added a Sex Trafficking Prevention Specialist position to our Runaway and Homeless Youth Services in order to help spread awareness and understanding within our community, as well as assist at-risk youth in combating this issue.
