The Wayne Foundation, Jamie L. Walton, and Kevin Smith urge you to sign this petition. One of the many ways we can help eradicate child prostitution and human trafficking in the United States is to speak directly to State and Federal representatives. Please tell the politicians in your state that we NEED their support!
Human trafficking, domestic trafficking, and child prostitution are crimes that can befall any child, anywhere, and at any time.
In many cases, victims who are minors are treated as criminals, even though Federal law dictates any person under the age of 18 involved in commercial sex exploitation is automatically a victim.
We urge you to increase funding for direct victim assistance and rehabilitation with in your state. We also urge you to increase the penalties for the perpetrators of these crimes.
Without the help of State governments, these (our) children could be lost forever to a world of crime, drug use, and abuse.
Thank you for your time and assistance!
