PARTNERING WITH S.O.A.P. TO SUPPORT VICTIMS OF SEX TRAFFICKING

IMG_20140129_114252670

Met Council partnered with S.O.A.P (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) to raise awareness of human trafficking.  Volunteers participated in an interactive briefing on sex trafficking and then canvassed midtown Manhattan in efforts to reach missing children and sex trafficking victims. Met Council volunteers provided outreach materials to midtown hotels in order to find and assist missing children and sex trafficking victims. These materials included free bars of soap embedded with the National Human Trafficking Hotline phone number (1-888-373-7888).

Sex trafficking is an epidemic that hurts people from every community all over the world — including American-born children.  As a result of sex trafficking, it is estimated that 27 million people, including 2 million children, are currently enslaved across the world.
