She sat on the front seat of the subway. She was a very pretty girl, approximately sixteen, with big brown eyes and long black hair. A baby sat in a stroller and a man sat next to her, holding her close. As she pulled her hair from her face, a tattoo on her neck emerged. The tattoo was a name; her pimp’s name.
To everyone around, she was a teenage mom. To me, she was a child sex trafficking victim.
The subway stopped. The girl stood and adjusted the short, short skirt. Her big brown eyes darkened and sadness emerged. She could hardly walk in the 6” heels and the man now firmly gripped her arm. She pulled at her skirt and stumbled on her heels as they walked down the subway; she was going to work.
Young victims of child sex trafficking are virtually invisible and have no voice. With your help, we are bringing this issue into the light and giving a voice to the victims. Thank you for your support and standing and walking with us to bring awareness and a voice to this horrific crime.
To support our friends at Gracehaven, the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event not only takes a stand to bring awareness, but it is an important way for us to continue this mission of breaking the silence and rescuing victims of sex trafficking!
Please help make a difference!
