1.2 million children are trafficked every year. Some are coerced, manipulated or kidnapped. Others are forced into it by close associates, like relatives, friends, boyfriends, and tragically sometimes their own parents who become their traffickers. While there can be complex cultural and economic motivations at play, the sex trade is predicated on one undeniable reality; Every day around the world, countless boys and girls are bought and raped by grown men. Forced labor is a $150 billion per year industry. The economic benefits of selling sex are irrefutable. Unlike drugs or weapons, children and women can be sold over, and over, and over again. Oftentimes five to ten times per day. But how long will the screams of victims go unheard? How long will the world stand by as children and women's lives are shattered and scarred by sexual and emotional abuse?
