Advocacy for Sexually Exploited Children

The Alliance champions the rights and needs of young people who are victims and survivors of child sex trafficking.

What is sexual exploitation?

Studies estimate that 50-98% of youth victimized by the commercial sex trade are or have previously been involved with the child welfare system. The Alliance works closely with the Los Angeles County child welfare and juvenile justice systems to support and empower system-involved youth who are victims of sex trafficking. We do this by ensuring that survivors have access to the educational, medical and transitional support needed to build independent and healthy lives free from  exploitation.
