100,000-150,00 childeren are used in prostitution in United States every year. 2185  childeren are being reported missing everyday.

Currently, there are 60 registered sex offenders in New Albany, IN.

In the U.S. and around the world, thousands of pimps, traffickers, and child molesters are treating our kids like objects to be used and discarded.   This bill will send a loud and unambiguous message to those who believe they can buy, sell and abuse our children with impunity: never again.

End Sex Slavery in New Albany, Indiana

Sex trafficking degrades our common humanity and I urge you form or strengthen Human Trafficking Task force to help end sex trafficking in New Albany. Within the New Albany city limits there appear to be brothels posing as massage parlors, all of which are at a higher risk for sex trafficking. These establishments advertise and are reviewed in online forums publicly.

According to the Polaris Project women trafficked in massage parlors may be forced to see 6 to 10 clients a day, working 10am to 2am, seven days a week. A victim of modern-day slavery may have come to our city in search of a better life, but she found is a locked door, a bed, and a quota.

Thank you for your time and energetic pursuit of the good. Together, we can make New Albany a safer and better home for everyone. With your support, New Albany can end sex trafficking in a major city's massage parlors & phony house or businesses. We can be the voice for the oppressed and the key for freedom.
