Summary:
To millions of Americans, the trafficking of children for commercial sexual purposes only happens somewhere else - in Southeast Asia or Central America - not on main Street USA. Yet, it is abundantly clear that today at least 100,000 children are being used as commodities for sale or trade in cites across the nation. These kids are 21st Century slaves. They cannot walk away.
