 Lives Worth Saving-Human Trafficking

Our Mission is to Identify, Locate and Rescue victims of Human Trafficking



DOMESTIC MINOR SEX TRAFFICKING  (Occuring in the USA and under 18yrs of age)

Did you know:

• At least 100,000 children are used in prostitution every year in the United States.

• The average age of entry into prostitution is 13 years old.

• Victims of Human Trafficking are often controlled by a pimp (Trafficker) who recruits them into sex trafficking
 
by posing as a boyfriend, caretaker, and protector.

• The three primary manifestations of child sex trafficking in America are:
  pimp-controlled prostitution, familial prostitution, and/or survival sex.

At Side-By-Side Church International, we are appalled to the point of ACTION at this insidious form of modern-day slavery.  Children being sexually exploited for the benefit of a Trafficker.  Being appalled is not enough!  There must be ACTION to identify, locate and rescue children who are victims; often incorrectly labeled "child prostitutes."

While many people are aware of this slavery in developing nations, they are unaware this is a problem in everyone's backyard.  That's right...here in the USA.  And not just in the big cities.  It's everywhere.  You just need to know what to look for and what to do once you see it.

We want to educate and prepare people to combat the manipulation, control and outright abuse the Traffickers use to control these  children.  You can help end these blatant acts of emotional and physical abuse that lead to the sexual exploitation of children.
