It happens every day, in every community and is hidden in plain sight – domestic minor sex trafficking. At our March General Meeting, our speaker, Cheryl Brasuell, Community Engagement Director for Traffick911, gives an overview of the issue and a picture of what sex trafficking looks like in the United States. Cheryl will give strategies to fight against the culture that breeds the demand for our children as well as real stories and case studies that will put a face to the issue.
Founded in 2009, Traffick911 is a team of passionate people driven to free youth from sex trafficking. Our approach is a three-prong strategy of prevention, identification and empowerment. We have identified and/or assisted 700 (and counting) victims and our work – in close partnership with law enforcement – has led to multiple state and federal felony arrests and convictions.
