Today I am going to take a moment to talk about something that is very close to my heart. This may be hard for some of you to read or hear about, but this is a topic that NEEDS to be talked about – Human Sex Trafficking.
Typically known for coffeehouses and cloud cover, Seattle has also gained another title: 3rd most prostituted children in the nation. Experts estimate that there are up to 300,000 underage girls sexually trafficked nationally every year. These girls (many as young as 12 and 13 years old) are bought and sold for the pleasure of men all over the country. This isn’t just happening in 3rd world countries, it’s happening right here in our own backyards.
One week ago, my friends Jason & Eric along with Executive Producer Jada Pinkett Smith released a film called “Rape For Profit” on iTunes. “Rape For Profit” is a powerful documentary the Huffington Post calls, “Disturbing and Provocative”. Set against the backdrop of Seattle’s downtown city lights, “Rape For Profit” takes the audience undercover for an up-close look at the true nature of the sex trade. There is a growing problem in major U.S. cities where girls as young as 12 years old are bought and sold as many as 15 times a night to service the desires of men. Experience the shocking truth and follow several heroes as they fight this modern-day slavery and stop the next generation of buyers.
Take a minute and watch the Trailer:
This movie is not for the faint of heart, however, just the fact that this is REALLY GOING ON makes it a necessity to get the word out. The war against Human Sex Trafficking is raging. Something that you can do right now is to arm yourself with knowledge. Purchase your own copy of the film on iTunes 1. To show your support and 2. To get the word out.
