The Streets are No Place For a Kid!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
On any given night there are 1.3 million kids sleeping on the streets in America.
Did you know that 48% of children who engage in commercial sex say they did it because they did not have a place to stay?
In addition to sex trafficking, these kids are at risk of substance abuse, pregnancy, incarceration/criminal activity, and PTSD.
The Runaway and Homeless Youth and Trafficking Prevention Act is being considered for passage in the House and the Senate. The Act provides prevention, outreach services, emergency shelters, and transitional living for homeless youth. It also includes non-discriminatory provisions that would prevent any provider of services discriminating against youth.
