It's been a record year through the third quarter of 2019. However, the very fact that we need to expand as we have is tragic because it means Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) continues to be a demand driven business. Demand is high!
When students are educated and empowered to be safe and to keep their friends/peers safe then we've got a fighting chance to impact what's happening for the better.
You can help create thousands of 'safe stories'! Presentations are offered free of charge. However, it costs an average of $500 - 750. If you would like to sponsor an awareness and education presentation (full, partial, or multiple) please donate today.
Increasingly, school counselors, nurses, social workers, teachers, and administrators have been interested in asking us to help educate and empower their students to be safe. Why? Because they understand the reality of DMST in the greater KC region and beyond.
Interacting with students, we've heard stories of students in the grooming process; talked to girls who have been coerced into sexting and now they are scared; spoke with students who know of victims being sold; and interacted with students angry that they are viewed as product to be sold in the demand driven business of domestic minor sex trafficking
Local Kansas City FOX 4 TV did an investigative report on domestic minor sex trafficking in the greater KC region. John Holt and Lisa McCormick did an excellent job offering a brief synopsis of this crisis. While it's specific to the KC region the story applies in the vast majority of towns and cities across America.
