Public Affairs: Rebuilding Hope! The Sexual Assault Center

Do you know what the fastest product for sale in the world is? Oil? Coffee? Corn? None of them! It's humans! Human sex trafficking happens everywhere, including the United States, and including our own home, Washington State. This is the human rights issue of our time. The US Institute Against Human Trafficking estimates that the number of people who are currently trapped in the commercial sex trade could be close to one million. In 2001, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimated that anywhere from 100,000 to almost 300,000 children are victims of sexual exploitation annually. Rebuilding Hope! The Sexual Assault Center for Pierce County is an accredited sexual assault center in Pierce County and they have a sex trafficking awareness and response program known as STRAPWA. To talk about human trafficking we recently invited Tasha Smith, Executive Director of Rebuilding Hope, the Sexual Assault Center for Pierce County and STRAPWA, and Stephanie Sacks, Clinical Director.
