Stop Treating Victims As Criminals

38 Signatures Goal: 100

In Seattle Washington we have a Human-Trafficking Task Force working hard to combat what is know to be a global concern. In King County there is an alarming amount of women and children who are being forced into unwanted sex. Forced to give their body to men in exchange for money that they will never see. Our officials are fighting so hard to stop international slavery yet they ignore the harsh reality of what is happening in thier own backyard. After a prostitution or related conviction the girls are provided with a list of street names they are not to be on in King County. The Courts are telling them \"just don\'t do it on the streets in King County\". The system is failing to give an alternative to jail to those who are being sexually exploited. Treatment is offered to those addicted to drugs and alcohol, a diversion is offered to offernders who solicit a prostitute, and jail is offered to those who are being violated, used, and enslaved. Help to bring them an opportunity to escape to safe a place. A place that has no bars or uniforms. Help bring them an alternative to jail, a place where job training, education, advocacy, and support will be provided. A chance at a better life. So many innocent lives are searching for a way out. Please join me in making their cries for safety loud enough to be heard by the only ones who can help them.

I am a survivor of domestic trafficking. I have seen what others could not imagine. Starting at the age of 15 the system failed to protect me. We need to STOP them from letting the traffickers win! brandiouse@yahoo.com
