Protect Us Kids Foundation

Protect Us Kids Foundation Protect Us Kids serves to protect youth from online commercial s*x trafficking. We fight to protect all youth, especially those living within under-served and rural areas globally.

Criminals that prey on youth from disadvantaged and rural communities online tend to operate under the radar because they employ methods that exploit cultural, behavioral and societal traits that are unique to such victims, but outside of the mainstream, and are therefore not highlighted by most cybersecurity awareness programs. In support of our mission, Protect Us Kids Foundation has the following key contributing goals:

Formally engage with humanitarian organizations, corporations, and international governments, to work collectively towards addressing the continued liability and legal challenges in human trafficking prevention in cyberspace and the effects of globalization and forced servitude. Support the establishment of innovative, yet ethically sound, data governance measures that serve to protect and maintain the confidentiality of personal data within the humanitarian environment. Protect Us Kids Foundation is currently researching these exploitative methods, many of which encourage runaways, promote human trafficking and slavery, ensnare youth in child-pornography rings and lead to the prostitution, kidnapping, abduction and murder of young people. Our focus is to provide youth from internationally disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds, and surrounding communities, with critical life-saving tools on how to navigate cyberspace without falling victim to child predators and exploiters.

Homelessness is a clear risk factor that increases the chances of exploitation. Without trusted adults and a support system of teachers, caregivers or family members, homeless children are at the highest risk of falling prey to predators.

All children deserve a safe home. 🔵

Instability creates opportunities for traffickers to reach out and bond with vulnerable children, most commonly through social media and chat rooms. These relationships are then used against the child to initiate s*xual activity. 🔵

This National Human Trafficking Awareness Day we want to raise awareness for the thousands of young girls and boys that will be illegally trafficked in the USA today.

Globally, an estimated 71% of enslaved people are women and girls, while men and boys account for 29%.

Estimates suggest that about 50,000 people are trafficked into the US each year, most often from Mexico and the Philippines.

In 2018, over half (51.6%) of the criminal human trafficking cases active in the US were s*x trafficking cases involving only children. This has increased further in 2019 and 2020.

Reports indicate that a large number of child s*x trafficking survivors in the US were at one time in the foster care system.

Advocates report a growing trend of traffickers using online social media platforms to recruit and advertise targets of human trafficking. This has increased exponentially during the current pandemic.

The average age a teen enters the s*x trade in the US is 12 to 14 years old. Many victims are runaway girls who were s*xually abused as children.

What can you do to help?

Donate, volunteer, and partner with PUK to help protect vulnerable children before they can be trafficked through online manipulation. 🔵

We are starting the year with a new round of Staying Cyber Safe!

1. If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer, and tell a trusted adult immediately.

If you accidentally see something you shouldn't, you won't get in trouble for telling a trusted adult.

The start of the new year is a great time to think about your online privacy.

Do you use the same password for everything? How long has it been since you changed your passwords? Do people know your passwords?

When deciding on a new password remember to include at least one uppercase and lowercase letters, a special character (like [email protected]#
or $) and a few numbers. "20Wash?ngton21" is a good example. 🔵

⛔Spotting these signs when talking to someone new can save you or your friends or family members from being tricked by an online predator or trafficker. ⛔

😁- They are overly nice immediately
🤐- They only want to talk privately, moving quickly from public comments to direct messages
📸- They pressure you to send pictures or to meet up in person
🎁- They promise to give you gifts or opportunities
🧐- They want your private information
📣- They already know a lot of information about you
👧- They invent stories to make them sound like they are your age.

If you think you maybe targeted by an online predator or trafficker, stop talking to them immediately and tell a trusted adult. You won't get in trouble, you are doing the right thing. 🔵
