Houston is well known as a major hub for sex trafficking. Depending on the year, it is consistently ranked in the top 10 cities across the United States for Sex Trafficking. Human trafficking presents itself in many ways, sometimes right in plain sight. There are greater than 100,000 online escort ads posted daily in the US, over 300,000 victims in Texas and over 79,000 of those victims who are children. The average age of a victim entering into sexual exploitation is 13. One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually exploited before they turn 18. The online solicitation of minors rose 93% in 2020. Sex and human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry and it is impacting our greatest asset; our children. We need to be the voice for those not heard.
