Child Abuse Sexual Assault

Child Prostitution & Sex Trafficking

Last week, the US Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Human Rights and the Law held hearings on child prostitution and sex trafficking in the US. Among the speakers was Rachel Lloyd from GEMS, Anita Alvarez, the elected state’s attorney from Cook County, IL (the 2nd largest prosecutor’s office in the country, FYI), and Senator Ron Widen (OR).

You can watch the complete webcast here. Congrats, by the way, to all the folks at GEMS who will receive a $250,000 Pepsi Refresh Grant to fund new outreach workers. Check out Demi Moore’s video on behalf of GEMS:
