In Our Own Backyard: A Closer Look at the Sex Trafficking of Local Girls
This event is being presented by Women's Funding Alliance, in collaboration with Seattle City Council, Seattle Human Services Department, YouthCare and Women's Funding Network.

As many as 300,000 children across America  particularly girls  are being sex trafficked in the U.S. through escort services and, increasingly, online. A recent study commissioned by the City of Seattle identified that right here in our own backyard at least 238 children are being forced into prostitution, with the total number, according to the assessment, likely closer to 300 to 500 children.

Join us for an engaging forum to learn more about the growing tragedy of sex trafficking of local youth, how the internet is making the problem more pervasive, what is being done about it, and how you can make a difference right here in Seattle to support young trafficking survivors, increase prosecution of traffickers and predators, and curb the demand.
