OUR HUMAN TRAFFICKING CAMPAIGN

Human trafficking is an illegal industry in the United States that generates an estimate of $9.5 billion dollars annually.  Sex trafficking is prevalent in all 72 counties in Wisconsin and southeast Wisconsin has the highest rates according to the US Attorney’s Department of Justice Office.  

According to the Human Trafficking Task Force of Greater Milwaukee79% of trafficking cases reported in Wisconsin occur in the city of Milwaukee, 92% of youth trafficked in  Milwaukee are female and 78% of youth bought and sold by traffickers in Milwaukee are African American.  Thirteen is the average age a child begins being trafficked for sex.  

The average pimp has 5 girls, gross over $100k annually and high end pimps make millions trafficking young men, women and children. Victims see an average of 30 “clients” per day and work 7 days a week.

WHY IS THIS CAMPAIGN NEEDED?

Sex trafficking in Wisconsin has become an epidemic and people are unaware that Wisconsin is a hub for sex trafficking and unfortunately they don’t know the signs.  People often think sex trafficking is something that happens overseas or in other states but it is actually happening right in your backyard.

This campaign, Trafficked – More Than Just A Story is essential in showing that sex trafficking is real and one of the major problems is how victims of sex trafficking are treated and looked at simple because professional service providers, non-professionals and regular people simply don’t know the signs or there just not trained in identifying the signs of a victim of sex trafficking.  

Survivors of sex trafficking have been stripped of their identities, families, purpose in life and they often find themselves struggling trying to navigate back into life trying to re-discover themselves. This campaign presents the problem and the solution to the problem.

This campaign includes a 5 Part TV Series, 60 Week Radio Series, a Curriculum, and Workshop for professional and non-professional service providers. 

Please help us spread awareness about this quiet horrific epidemic and help us fight against and end sex trafficking in Wisconsin.
