ABOUT IN PLAIN SIGHT STORIES OF HOPE AND FREEDOM
You may have heard the term sex trafficking and thought that it was just an international issue. While the term trafficking may conjure images of desperate illegal immigrants being forced into prostitution by human smugglers, over 80 percent of victims in 2011 confirmed sex trafficking cases in this country were American citizens. Or, maybe, you heard about the recent case in Ohio where three girls were kidnapped and kept as sex slaves...and you thought it was just one guy with a serious problem. Think again. It s happening in plain sight, and you probably don t even realize it.

In Plain Sight stories of Hope and Freedom is a moving, sad, but a movie full of hope. It talks about sex trafficking, but not in other 3rd world countries, but here in the U.S. Not just in big cities, but in rural and small areas everywhere.
Here are some facts for you to read:
Over 80 percent of victims in 2011 confirmed sex trafficking cases in this country were American citizens. 80% of sex trafficking victims are women and girls and up to 50% are minors .
90% of prostituted women have been physically abused as children .
70% of sex trafficking is linked to organized crime .
75% of prostituted women have attempted suicide.
The average age for girls trafficked into prostitution in the US is 12-14.
A pimp’s yearly income is around $632,000.
Some of the names of the homes these ladies opened to help the victims are:
Hope for Justice
The Samaritan Woman
These homes are such peaceful, beautiful places for the victims to live in while they learn how to take care of themselves and heal. All of the homes have a strong Biblical base and are free with no expectations for the women and girls. Their job is just to heal and learn that there is good out there.
This film is such an important one and we all need to help in any way we can. Don’t just close your ears and shut your eyes to this trafficking, but help. Go to the movie site and see what all you can do to help.
I highly recommend this movie for the things it can tell us that are happening right where we live. We can’t sit in silence anymore.
