This is not an issue that can be solved through a single approach. This is not solely a legislative issue, an issue of poverty, a policing issue, a mental health or an addictions issue.

 Sexual exploitation/sex trafficking is a community issue.

 There is Hope!  We can stop the exploitation if we work together. Stay informed. Sign up to receive key information
