Sex Trafficking is not just an international problem - Unfortunately it is alive and well in the USA. The Average American lives within 19 miles of Sex Trafficking. 13 is the average age of entry in the USA. There are 20,000 homeless youth in MN annually and they will be targeted within 48 hours of hitting the streets. 99% of women in sex trafficking/domestic prostitution in our country want out, ...however there are less than 100 recovery beds in the whole nation. 80% of US cities have no recovery beds. Those who are asking for help in our country have little to no opportunity. They are typically told they must "Take a Number" and put on waiting list that last up to a year.
