It's A Crime and It's Inhumane

Trafficking affects about 300 girls a month

Human trafficking (or modern day slavery) is an issue impacting the entire world. Here in Atlanta, a primary area of human trafficking is the underground commercial sex economy (UCSE). Specifically, the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) is a growing concern. In a recent study conducted this April, the Urban Institute found that Atlanta is one of the primary cities for the UCSE (Urban Institute, 2014). In Atlanta, the commercial sex market is estimated at $290 million dollars a year. This rate of income is higher than both the illicit sales of guns ($146 million per year) and drugs ($117 million per year). About 374 girls are trafficked in the UCSE market in Atlanta every month. The average age of entry into the UCSE is between 12 and 14 years of age (Center for Public Policy, 2011). About 100 young girls are exploited nightly in Georgia. The problem is a scourge on our city and state.
