ATLANTA - Nov. 27, 2017 - PRLog -- There were 2 4 2 , 2 9 5 Black and Brown Children missing in 2016 and sadly that number is rising. With renewed interest due to celebrities using their powerful and influential platforms, Cyntoia Brown, (https://www.google.com/search?q=cyntoia+brown&tbm=nws&source=univ&tbo=u&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjxlvrd0d3XAhUR8YMKHYauBlAQt8YBCDcoAQ&biw=1366&bih=629) a trending social media topic and victim of sex trafficking may actually receive the justice she wasn't afforded as a young traumatized victim. Genise Shelton, who's Married to Medicine fame provided her a significant platform will host her annual Teen Summit in Atlanta on January 21, 2018, a month designated to bring attention to human and sex trafficking. Online registration (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/genise-shelton-presents-our-childrens-keeper-teen-summit-workshop-tickets-40148587506) is open and limited to 25 teens per city.

CNN reports Sex trafficking as 'The New American Slavery'. According to a 2014 study by the Urban Institute, some traffickers in Atlanta make more than $32,000 a week. The study also cited research findings from 2007 that Atlanta's illegal sex industry generates around $290 million a year.

In 2017, Genise launched Our Children's Keeper Foundation, (http://www.ourchildrenskeeper.org/) created to help end modern day slavery of child sex trafficking and recover abducted and missing children in Atlanta and surrounding areas. OCK works to prevent the sexual exploitation of youth and helps current
victims find confidence, strength and stability beyond the enslavement of their current lifestyle. She is committed to using her platform to shed light through awareness and support to rescue young girls and boys like Cyntoia Brown so they never have to face this injustice alone.

The Teen Summit will take place from 11 am - 6 pm at Jon'Ric Salon and Spa and The Cave Luxury Barber Spa, both located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, where sex-trafficking often hides in plain sight. It is geared towards teens in at-risk environments from ages 10 - 18. Sponsorship starts at $50 per child. Other cities that rank high for human and sex trafficking include Charlotte, Detroit, Miami, Chicago, D.C., and Miami.

Corporate sponsors include Mixed Chicks, Shelton Hospitalist Group, The Cave Luxury Barber Spa, Jon'Ric Salon & Spa and Pretty Girls Sweat. Sponsorship packages are available and can be requested to help raise necessary funds by visiting http://www.ourchildrenskeeper.org/.
