Hope for America’s Trafficked Children
Made In the USA: The Sex Trafficking of America’s Children is not just a book about human trafficking – but it’s also a book of HOPE and EMPOWERMENT. Made In the USA shares five compelling true stories of American children (4 girls & 1 boy) trafficked into the sex trade in the U.S. The stories were chosen to show the diversity of how American children are taken and held captive: from being trafficked by a family member, lured by a boyfriend, set-up by a friend, kidnapped and held hostage by strangers, to the plight of America’s homeless youth engaged in survival sex which frequently leads to trafficking. Each story shows a unique version of trafficking and collectively gives you a comprehensive picture of how traffickers operate in the U.S.
“Ms. Jordheim’s book is timely, emotional and grounded in research and personal experience. Through her words, the public sees how the pimps spot and then prey on our vulnerable children. But she doesn’t leave us there, she draws attention to the preventive and restorative services that are necessary for children who are victims of commercial sexual exploitation.“
