Sex trafficking is a major issue affecting over twenty million trafficking victims globally and is the fastest growing crime today. American children are bought and sold every day for sex. Gain a better understanding of what sex trafficking is, who is at risk, warning signs and how you can join the fight against it. We welcome Jessica Munoz, Founder and President of Ho`ōla Nā Pua, a Hawaii-based non-profit committed to the prevention of sex trafficking that provides care for children who have been exploited. We also welcome Tammy Bitagna, who shares her powerful redemption story about rising out of the circumstances of early childhood abuse that led to being in “the system,” being a chronic runaway and being trafficked. We hope this episode sheds light on the travesty of sex trafficking and inspires you to join the fight against this injustice.
