Jackson Heights Queens. If you have ever been in this area of New York you will notice the 6 bars or more on every block all catering to one thing-the sex industry. You cannot walk down one block and not hit a chica bar or lounges advertising women and sex. The industry there ranges from little girls to young gay men to trans-gender individuals. (more…)
In this modern age of the transmittal of information that is as fast as the speed of light, unless you have a slow connection, facts, figures, stories, pictures, video, etc. regarding the issue of trafficking are running rampant.

Let’s talk a little bit about stereotypes. The girl with the short skirt, the low-cut top and heels-automatic harlot. Right? Wrong. The clean cut well mannered, good looking guy with a lot going for himself in which you and your friend met the night before, trafficker. Wrong. No! RIGHT.

But one thing that stands out in these other countries whether it’s Eastern Europe or Ethiopia, there is always women out in the streets fighting for their sisters! (more…)

S.O.B’s that is a fitting acronym for operations that degrade humanity. Sexually Oriented Businesses supply the commercial sex industry with bodies of women used for sex to satisfy the salacious and perverse demands of customers who pay for sex. These, of course, are women who are not giving their bodies willingly. I would like to enlighten you a little bit on the issue of these SOB’s.
The Initiative Against Sexual Trafficking, a subsidiary of The Salvation Army, shows us what these SOBs are comprised of and how they work. This is what they had to say: (more…)
There is this misconception that women and girls want to be prostitutes. The “Oldest Profession in the World”. No one stops to think about the reasons why. But there is one thing for sure, no woman or young girl wakes up one day and decides she wants a career of prostitution where she will have sex with strange men who will beat her, torture her and ultimately dehumanize her.
