The latest weapon against sex trafficking is a rose.
In 9 years, the Out of Darkness program has rescued more than 500 women from forced prostitution — sex trafficking — with 60% of these women moving on and living a meaningful life away from prostitution.

No matter how many times I hear statistics like this, it makes me wince:
“Average age of forced prostitution: 11-14 years old.”
Who pays for this!?!
Moreover, can you imagine how more difficult it would be to crackdown on sex trafficking and rescue these girls if prostitution was made legal in a place like Atalanta?
Hat’s off to these brave men and women who are taking a stand against sex trafficking, reaching out to help these desperate girls, and even putting their own lives in danger.
