Stop the Sex Trade


Updated January 2020


HUMAN TRAFFICKING: ABDUCTING, FORCING, DECEIVING OR RECRUITING SOMEONE INTO WORKING AGAINST THEIR WILL. MOST COMMONLY FOR THE PURPOSES OF SEXUAL EXPLOITATION.


Slavery in any form is wrong. I'm just especially passionate about stopping sex traffickers using the massage industry as a front for such heinous activities.

What to do to help and make a long standing change? 

  • Pay attention to your surroundings? If you see any of these warning signs speak up to trained officials.
  • Unless their employer or guardian is with them, they are briefly allowed out of the house, 
  • They have few personal belongings. The same clothes are worn regardless of weather conditions.
  • The house or location in which they live has seemingly out of place high security precautions. (e.g. darkened windows, boarded up windows, bars on windows, barbed wire, security cameras, etc.)
  • Seems to work strange hours - excessively long or odd 
  • Young people that are at home during the day, often during school hours. Many times they will be looking forlornly out of windows.
  • Know that slavery does exist - get, and keep your head out of the sand.


83% OF CONFIRMED TRAFFICKING CASES IN THE UNITED STATES ARE AMERICAN BORN CITIZENS

Tips on how to help stop this from happening in the massage industry?  

  • Know where you are going for a massage.  
  • Ensure that they have licenses and establishment licenses (if applicable).  
  • Talk with them first, get referrals, if you don't feel right at the establishment, leave.
  • You are offered sex. Then call trusted officials.

Help, support, share and donate when you can.
