The Truth Behind Sex Trafficking

Village Voice Media Asks For Your Support of SB 596

Activists crusading against underage prostitution like to collect money for "raising awareness." They're much less likely to seek funding that goes to provide shelter and counseling for underage prostitutes themselves. As part of VVM's special series on sex trafficking, we are encouraging support for U.S. Senate Bill 596, which calls for six one-year grants of $2 million to $2.5 million to provide housing and mental-health services for actual victims.
