MISSSEY

MISSSEY Every child is too valuable to be bought and sold.
MISSSEY is a project based out of Alameda County that was created to address the epidemic of the commercial sexual exploitation of children, especially in the form of child/teen prostitution. MISSSEY was created to respond to the specialized and complex needs of sexually exploited children and will dramatically decrease the current gap in CSEC-specific services by providing intensive case management, court advocacy, professional & community trainings, comprehensive data reporting and local/state/national education & awareness campaigns. We constantly strive to build a broad network of support for the issue of the commercial sexual exploitation of children as well as support for recognition of commercially sexually exploited children as victims. MISSSEY understands that the sexual exploitation of children is child abuse. MISSSEY is committed to the idea that sexually exploited children need specialized services that focus on victimization and recovery and redirection toward empowerment and safety. As a new project we are in the process of acquiring the tools & equipment we need to maximize our success and efficacy as an organization. We rely strongly on the support of the community, namely people like you, to maintain our daily functions and make our programs effective and enriching for all who participate.

Home - MISSSEY

We believe that it's essential to keep speaking up about injustice. Today, we'd like to share some facts about the case against Jeffrey Epstein.

- An investigation into Epstein's actions was opened in 2005 but closed in 2008 in a secret deal with Miami prosecutors. This deal allowed Epstein to escape federal prosecution. Instead, he spent only a year in jail, leaving 6 days a week for work.
- The survivors of Epstein's crimes haven't received their justice. One survivor, Courtney Wild, said the following when interviewed by The Miami Herald:
“Jeffrey preyed on girls who were in a bad way, girls who were basically homeless. He went after girls who he thought no one would listen to and he was right."

MISSSEY works every day to support survivors of commercial sexual exploitation and to fight the systemic injustice that allows men like Jeffrey Epstein to escape punishment. For more information about our services, visit https://misssey.org/

We envision a world without commercial sexual exploitation. To that end, MISSSEY exists to provide services and work for systemic change.

07/12/2019
The Epstein case is not an outlier. Child sex trafficking is 'pervasive' in the U.S.

The details of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking charges reflect the facts of commercial sexual exploitation in America. Epstein consistently preyed on vulnerable girls, specifically low-income, runaway, and foster youth. His victims were often as young as 14. In a 2005 investigation, the criminal justice system failed to bring any justice to his victims. MISSSEY stands by the survivors of Epstein’s abuse and hopes that he will finally face the consequences of his crimes.
For more information, below is an interview with Yasmin Vafa of Rights4Girls, an anti-trafficking organization in Washington D.C.

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 sexual servitude (prostitution), regardless of the absence of economic leverage, manipulation, fraud, coercion, threats, force and violence is considered a commercially sexually exploited child (CSEC). A child victim of human trafficking does not have to prove that they were tricked or violently forced into sexual 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.

I have never been so disappointed with an organization. When I finally got thru to someone and enrollrd my child into a session and showed up for a group session to be told that oh it had been cancelled and we will call you when it's rescheduled. Still waiting on that call. When I read online about the organization and how it help teens I was really excited. Totally frustrated with this organization. I hope others have better luck that what has happened to me.
Inspiring!
