Body and Sold
Over 100,000 young Americans run away from home every year. Within 48 hours of being on the street these teens will be approached by a man posing as a friend, offering food, shelter, and love. Most of the time, he will turn out to be a pimp and will sell the young person for commercial sex. The BODY & SOLD Project is a theater and community initiative to raise awareness about the epidemic of commercial sexual exploitation of our young people and develop strategies to combat it.
In 2015, Deborah Lake Fortson and Amy Merrill created a groundbreaking activist network of theaters and communities in the greater Boston area. The goal: to shine a spotlight on the trafficking of American young people for commercial sexual exploitation taking place right in our own backyard.
