HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

Domestic minor sex trafficking refers to the commercial sexual exploitation of any American citizen or legal resident under the age of 18. Victims include girls, boys, and transgender youth as young as 12’or even younger. They are recruited, exploited, and victimized by traffickers or pimps in the United States.

This brochure is for youth and family services professionals who come in direct contact with young people who may be sexually exploited or trafficked. By reading it, you’ll learn who is most at risk, what to look for, what exploited and trafficked young people need, and where you can get additional resources and support.
