Presidential Candidate Dr. Valerie McCray Official Statement on the Arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell
Human Trafficking: Woman at Helm of Epstein Sexual Trafficking Ring Indicted, What's Next?
"I want this to be the first of many steps to eradicate this atrocity from every community in our nation. It is our silence and victim-blaming that has allowed this scourge in our society to fester. We owe it to these young people to do everything within our power to repair the psychological and spiritual damage that they have endured. As President, I will forcefully deal with those who have participated in the victimization and most importantly those who have profited from their victimization.
"Human trafficking is a cancer that is spreading aggressively and has to be dealt with aggressively with no leniency based on finance and social status. The sex traffickers and predators are sometimes leaders in our society - politicians, teachers, ministers, coaches, police, and dignitaries. These children have seen them in their most nefarious and pathetic state. They have an understandable distrust and disdain for authority figures.
"As a Psychologist, I have worked with young women that have been sexually exploited. Agility is the key. Their developmental stages have been shook-up. In one therapy session, some minutes I'm dealing with a young playful child, some minutes a manipulative seductress, some minutes they are seeking my approval and some minutes doing everything possible to be rejected, ricocheting through the plethora of emotions. The psychological effects are usually life-long, and unfortunately, the victims are more susceptible to repeated exploitation. They often feel marked as damaged goods.
"Human trafficking is a $150 billion enterprise therefore, the most influential in society often go without any repercussions. Deals are made behind closed doors, or they are protected by what and who they know. Sex trafficking is under the umbrella of human trafficking. Labor trafficking is horrific. However, sex trafficking and child-pornography is an even more depraved enterprise and the psychological and spiritual damage is long-lasting and severe. We have to address this as a National Crisis. With a Strong conviction of Maxwell, we send a message that what is wrong is wrong regardless of gender, color, career, or social status."
