General information

According to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, a federal law passed in 2000, any child under the age of 18 years old that is used for the purpose of exploitation through s*xual servitude (prostitution), regardless of the absence of economic leverage, manipulation, fraud, coercion, threats, force and violence is considered a commercially s*xually exploited child (CSEC). A child victim of human trafficking does not have to prove that they were tricked or violently forced into s*xual exploitation in order to be considered a victim of human trafficking under this federal law. This law applies to every child human trafficking victim in the United States.

Dear colleagues, we invite you for an interview Greetings! Thank you very much for understanding the seriousness of the situation in the world and raising such vital topics in our society, especially now. On December 04, 2021, the conference "Global Crisis: A Time for Truth" took place. It was organized and synchronously translated into 100 languages by volunteers, ordinary people from 180+ countries, who are not indifferent to what is going on in the world, like you. The exact topic you are covering was also raised at the conference. We are glad to invite you to watch the conference and participate in the International discussions about the conference “Global Crisis. Time for the Truth” and the information raised there. If you would like to participate just let me know. Here you can see the timing of the topic of slavery 10:30:44, 10:55:34 minuti in questo video (The link is in English) https://youtu.be/hRVCDgRTuHY You can choose any of the 100 translation languages here: https://creativesociety.com/global-crisis-time-for-the-truth #GlobalCrisis #CreativeSociety #humantrafficking #HumanSlavery #abuse
If you missed it last night the entire episode of Race In America: The conversation NBC Bay Area on the topic of "Missing White Woman Syndrome". We've been working on this special for months with Clayman Institute for Gender Research Stanford University MISSSEY looking at the value of a life and whether race and gender play a role in who we search for and who the media responds to. It's a deep dive meant to educate not divide. I hope you enjoy it.
