If this is a trafficking emergency 911

Technology is playing an increasing role in grooming and controlling victims of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST).

A recent study on DMST shows that the average age of entry into commercial sexual exploitation is roughly 12 to 14 years old. While the most frequently reported age of entry into the life was 15, one in six participants reported being trafficked before the age of 12 with the youngest victims less than 1 year old.*
