Last year a huge raid occurred in Georgia. More than 80 children were found around the age of 15 and the youngest just 3 months old. The baby was rescued by a undercover cop who was fake trying to buy a 5 year old girl for $600. Over 110 people were convicted of sex trafficking and faced jail time. All children will receive care from the state and be out with good families because that is what these children deserve. not exploited.
A web site called Backpage.com has been finally seized after many years of having secret meanings in ads that lead people to illegal child pornography sites and minor trafficking sites. On April 6th the FBI raided Michael Lacey house who is the owner of Backpage.com. The FBI and many others have reason to believe that he had direct knowledge of these ads on account that 90% of the sites earnings were from these horrible ads. So why did the US do something sooner? Around the turn of the century the government passed a law stating the a website owner can not be charged for what is put on his or hers site as long as the site is open to public domain. This law protected the site for a very long time but the US has finally stepped in.

The Killers - Day And Age - Goodnight, Travel Well. This is a amazing song by one of my favorite bands The Killers. This song tells the story of a young women who is taken and sold. She must then be prostituted by the will of the person who bought her. This song Does a great job using repetition to show how it feels knowing that nobody is coming to help and that there is nothing that you can do to help yourself. This song was a big thing on MTV music and I believe it still has a huge purpose to be had. Here is the link to the actual music video but This does have mature content in it https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=241&v=IoTBclI22Dk.
“The Golden Doors to Freedom” is a participatory arts project that turns abandoned doors into dramatic vehicles for communal focus on human trafficking. Guided by master gilder William Adair, trafficking survivors and allies in the community will convert discarded wooden doors into freedom portals. After applying 23k gold leaf to the doors, participants will write, stencil, draw, scratch, burnish and embellish them with their own expressions about trafficking. I love this art because it tells me as the audience what a door might mean to a someone who is trafficked. To me it means a door is a way to a new life, one of hope, and happiness. But to many people this door is closed and this is why the doors have no handles.
