Northeast Newscast Episode 73: Founder of Stop Trafficking Project talks about ways to help end Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking

Russ Tuttle, Founder of the Stop Trafficking Project

 

By: Elizabeth Orosco

“A lot of people think that sex trafficking looks like the movie Taken,” said Russ. “It was a dramatic movie, but it is not an accurate reflection of the majority of trafficking… you can’t see these chains. There are more people in slavery today than at any other time in history. In 2013, Arizona State University ran decoy ads online in Kansas City advertising individuals for sale and found that over 106,000 men in Kansas City were willing to purchase.”

Russ travels the area educating teens and adults about the issue of domestic minor sex trafficking, and what can be done to combat the issue. This episode is full of practical information parents and teens can use in the fight against trafficking.
