TAT’s message is simple and clear: When you see anyone underage being prostituted, this is human trafficking. Call it in immediately!
When you see evidence of pimp control, no matter what the age of the prostituted person, this is human trafficking. Call it in immediately!
It does not matter if the prostituted person is under the influence, rough looking, tough talking, acting provocatively, etc. Anyone under the age of 18 being sold for commercial sex is a victim of human trafficking (TVPA). Anyone being sold for commercial sex though force, fraud or coercion is a victim (TVPA).
Make the call, save lives!
