Why Kansas City?

U.S. Hub for Sex Trafficking

Kansas City sits at the intersection of three national highways that are a pipeline of illegal activity into the area. The highways also carry children who are homeless or runaways, bringing them to the region from all over the United States.

Who You're Helping


 

 

Who You're Helping


 

 

According to recent reports, the human trafficking industry has more than doubled since 2009, becoming the world's second most profitable criminal enterprise after drug trafficking. Valued to be an estimated $32 billion-a-year global industry, sex trafficking takes place in every community, no matter the cultural make up, affluence or location. *

Those who are particularly vulnerable to becoming domestic minor sex trafficking victims are girls ages 11-16 with a history of childhood abuse, children from divorced households being raised by single parents, and children who are very poor. Victims are often starved for attention and possess low self-esteem. “Spotters” are employed by pimps to recruit vulnerable victims in schools, malls, parks, fast food restaurants, movie theaters and— most prevalently—online. 

Veronica’s Voice is a Kansas City organization that provides legal assistance, safe housing and life skills training for survivors of prostitution. Founder Kristy D. Childs is a survivor who has a 10-year record of working tirelessly to empower those who are exploited in transitioning into healthy, safe and fulfilling lives away from prostitution and abuse. Her team also provides community education, legal advocacy and operates Magdalene KC, the first facility of its kind in Kansas City to offer a safe haven and a place of healing for women seeking escape from commercial sexual exploitation.
