Who Is At Risk

Potentially Everyone. Predators Seek Out Vulnerabilities And Attempt To Take Advantage Of Children/Teens By Enticing, Grooming And Luring Them Into A Position Of Control, Force, Fraud Or Coercion. Predators Will Attempt To Build Some Level Of Trust With A Potential Target Prior To Exposing Themselves As The Proverbial ‘Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing’.

Victim’s often fall into the trap initiated through trust and find themselves trapped either by force, fraud or coercion.  Victims who are led into a false relationship believing that the offender cares for them will often show signs of what is being labeled the Stockholm Syndrome whereby their view of the situation becomes so distorted they will not see themselves as victimized, not try to leave and/or not report or testify against their abuser.

Predators Do Not Discriminate. Children Of Every Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Culture, Religion, Socio-Economic And Geographical Location Status Are Potential Targets. Education And Awareness Are Critical To Prevent And Avoid Victimization.

Help us arise, and shine the Light to protect our children from the thick darkness of sexual exploitation.

Sex Trafficking

  • Sex trafficking is an estimated $50 Billion per year “Industry”. At least half that number is estimated to involve children ~The sale of people (trafficking) has surpassed the illegal sales of guns and is steadily advancing to outrank the sale of drugs in the United States.
  • This is a global epidemic, and this is happening in the United States. California, Texas, Florida, New York and Ohio have the most heavily reported sex trafficking cases.
  • 1 in 7 of nearly 25,000 runaways reported to National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were likely victims of child sex trafficking

Child Exploitation and Sexual Abuse

  • 10 million tips were reported to NCMEC Cybertipline in 2017, most of which were related to child sexual abuse images, online enticement, child sex trafficking and child sex molestation.
  • More than 80% of child sexual abuse is carried out by someone the victim knows and trusts. Less than 20% of sexual abuse and trafficking reports are abduction cases
  • Online enticement of children is becoming the leading method used by abusers and traffickers to groom and lure their victims.
  • At any given time, millions of images of child sexual abuse material, including torture and rape, are being viewed and distributed across the world wide web.
