PRLog - Jan. 22, 2013 - There is a child sex trade epidemic in America. Recently the FBI named Atlanta as one of 14 cities in the nation with the highest incidents of children used in prostitution. Each month, approximately two hundred to five hundred girls are commercially sexually exploited throughout Georgia and research has indicated that the average age of entry is between 12 and 14 years old.
Join the IamNOTYours Campaign today with National Spokeswoman Jasmine Guy
In Georgia, more adolescent young girls are victimized by prostitution each month than there are people killed in car accidents each year. NOtYours! (http://www.iamnotyours.com/)
Exploited girls do not self-identify as victims, and deny victimization due to fear of the physical and psychological abuse inflicted by the trafficker/pimp, as well as trauma bonds developed through the victimization process. "Our mission is to make a difference in the fight against child exploitation, shares CEO Mona Stephen. "While we may not have an absolute answer, we will certainly ensure our efforts will heighten the sense of urgency and awareness to this important cause."
A press conference will be held at McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP on January 31st with an esteemed panel that includes: Mayor Kasim Reed (Atlanta), Jasmine Guy (Spokeswoman)
Attendees include members of national and local media as well as corporate, political, and celebrity influencers.
