A recent FBI law enforcement bulletin says child sex trafficking is a “problem of epidemic proportion” that threatens 300,000 American children.


The report said victims are often forced to travel far from home and their lives revolve around “violence, forced drug use and constant threats.”

According to the Washington-based FAIR Fund international nonprofit organization, most of the child victims come from poor neighborhoods and broken families.

“Most of the girls that we work with come from a broken home, maybe a single-headed household, [where] there is a lot of poverty,” said Andrea Powell, executive director of FAIR Fund that works to prevent human trafficking and sexual violence in the lives of youth, especially girls, around the world.

Powell says in the majority of cases there have been records of previous abuse by a family member or a parent in the form of verbal abuse, sexual abuse, and witnessing domestic violence.

“We are talking about something that has been called an epidemic by the FBI,” she told Press TV adding “we need a culture shift. We need people to understand this is not only a dirty 14-year-old girl who has made some bad choices. This is a child. Somebody out there is taking advantage of her selling her body.”

Child sex victims are often transported around the US and are often provided counterfeit identification to use in case they are arrested.

The average age a child gets involved into the sex trafficking industry in the US is between 12 and 14 years old.

“No matter where we would pull in different truck stops, there were always other truckers talking on their CBs to let other truckers know that I was available,” said Kristy Childs who became a victim at the age of 12 and was prostituted out in different cities and truck stops for six years.

Experts say it is more difficult to track and arrest offenders because traffickers' are now widely communicating to customers on the internet.

“The majority of the girls that we work with here at Fair Fund are in fact girls who are being exploited online,” said Powell.

Demi Moore Steps Up Child Sex Trafficking Crusade

May 5th, 2010

Demi Moore has stepped up her campaign against child sex trafficking - the actress met with lawmakers at the White House to discuss the issue on Tuesday.

The Ghost star launched The Demi and Ashton (DNA) Foundation with her husband Ashton Kutcher to raise awareness of the harrowing subject and to help survivors of abuse.

Now, Moore has furthered her fight against sexual exploitation - she held a news conference at Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday afternoon calling for harsh punishments for offenders, as well as more leniency and support for youngsters coerced into prostitution.

Speaking during the panel meeting, Moore said, "I think many Americans are more willing to accept that girls are being trafficked in Cambodia and can't imagine it's happening right here... It's more profitable and less risky to sell a girl than drugs. Demand for prostitution fuels sex trafficking. And I think clearly our system isn't working."

Following her talk at Capitol Hill, Moore then visited the White House, along with three female sex abuse victims, to discuss human trafficking with White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.

In a post on her Twitter.com page following the meetings, Moore writes, "Appreciated the opportunity to participate today in a Congressional briefing to end Child Sex Slavery in America!"

Whist Anglos exist, they will always exploit little kiddies just like they did in cesspit London where they were confined in in pre-Victorian times.
Unfortunately, these freaks of nature colonised country after country raping little kiddies.

Look up the history of every country they infested and infected.

So Demi Moore is wasting her time preaching to her fellow Anglos, most of whom are paedophiles, getting their sadistic "pleasure" from kids.
