About: Human trafficking is a serious issue in Texas, especially in the greater Houston area. For too many victims of exploitation, their trauma begins in childhood. A Polaris study found that the peak age of entrance into sex and labor trafficking is between 12-17 years of age. The majority of domestic victims are those who have left a violent or abusive home in the hopes that anything on the streets is safer than what they encounter daily at home. Runaway adolescents are at higher risk of being lured into trafficking, particularly sex trafficking.  Click "register" to read more about the event.
