Doesnt identify as a victim (minimizing their own abuse) Is moved frequently from place to place Disguise the real age and name of victim Why does this problem exist? a. Children are being sold because there is a demand to purchase sex much of it invisible online

c. Laws must be enforced and convictions made in order to deter predator buyers d. Sexualized music, media and fashion glamorizes pimping and the look of girls on the street Where are Victims Being Sold? No longer standing on street corners (although that still happens) Recruited out of prisons/jails, by other kids in juvenile

detention, and sold by spotters from their own schools Now online at more than 100 sites (in Seattle WA) selling more than 1000 sex acts every night Who are the Buyers? How do we end it?

a. Support your local law enforcement in enforcing the NEW LAWS passed since 2013. Most laws are to arrest pimps. b. Use Shared Hopes tools to BRING JUSTICE and write to your lawmakers to encourage stricter penalties on BUYERS as a deterrent. c. We will END DEMAND only when there are strong deterrents for those who are buying children for sex acts. If theres no market, theres no need for a product.
