Generally viewed as a problem only in 3rd world countries, sex trafficking is destroying the lives of men, women, and children all across the United States.
The FBI reports that the average age that a girl or boy is first recruited into prostitution or sex trafficking in the U.S. is 11-14 years-old. They immediately are at risk of overdose, STDs, suicide, and homicide.
The mission of Out of Darkness, the anti-trafficking ministry of Atlanta Dream Center, is to reach, rescue, and restore all victims of commercial sexual exploitation. Commercial exploitation may take the form of stripping, pornography, survival sex, prostitution, or sex trafficking.
