Why a Blue Heart?
July 30th - WORLD AGAINST TRAFFICKING
The Crime of human trafficking affects an estimated 25 million people around the world.
Sex Trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States.
Each year 100,000- 300,000 people are victims of Sex Trafficking in the United States.
Girls younger than 11 years old are victims of Sex Trafficking here in Northern Nevada.
In 2013, The office of The Attorney General spearheaded legislation that defined Sex Trafficking as a crime and increased penalties for perpetrators.
We wanted to bring renewed attention to S.O.S. (Supporting our Survivors)!!
S.O.S. is a non-profit organization designated for the sole purpose of raising funds for victims of Sex trafficking directly or through programs to assist law enforcement in prosecution of perpetrators.
Since the passage of this legislation, members of S.O.S. have been raising money for victims of Sex Trafficking and prosecutions of sex traffickers have increased and task forces have been created across the state.
