Each year 100,000 - 300,000 youths are at risk of sex trafficking in the United States, and New York City is no exception to this contemporary form of child slavery. Girls averaging the age of 13 are physically and mentally coerced into the sex trade by adults. This is true whether she is fooled by a pimp who poses as a boyfriend or an immigrant is lured by the prospect of honest work only to be raped and sold on arrival. She sometimes may not be fed, while the pimp and madames keep the $500-1000 made each trick. Violent threats and no family to turn to are among the forces that keep the girls enchained.
Come dance at this Sunday rooftop party. Serious fun for a serious cause.
