TAT’s message is simple!
If you see anyone underage being prostituted, this is human trafficking. Nothing else has to be proven. It doesn’t matter if they say they “want to do this,” “they need the money,” etc. Anyone under the age of 18 being sold for commercial sex is a victim of human trafficking according to our federal law. Call it in immediately.
If you see evidence of pimp control no matter what the age of the prostituted person, this is human trafficking. It doesn’t matter if she is on drugs, if she is older, if she looks like she has been out there a long time. If force, fraud or coercion was used to put her out there, then it is human trafficking.
Make the call, save lives!
