Tracey was a victim of child sex trafficking, but local police arrested Tracey for prostitution and placed her in juvenile detention. She was getting punished for an act that she couldn't even legally consent to. She was a kid who needed help and support.

[Boys are trafficked also, teens as well as small children.]

"With your help, we think we could reach 100,000 signatures.
*That is one signature for every child being commercially sexually exploited*.
100,000 for 100,000.
We want to show state lawmakers that Safe Harbor laws are necessary, are vital to righting this indescribable wrong.

Can you tell one friend about this petition? Just one. Tell them about girls and boys like Tracey; about the injustice that exists
in the 39 states without Safe Harbor laws;
and that there is something they can do, right now, today, to help end it.

Thank you for signing and helping us fight for a free future."

Signed. Child sex trafficking is despicable. I hope we can end it all and bring justice to the children and teens and punish the perpetrators.
