Human trafficking is the 2nd largest criminal industry in the world reaping an estimated $32 billion in the trade of human beings and the average age a victim enters trafficking is 11 to 14 years old. It’s estimated that 79,000 minors and youth in Texas are being trafficked
Denise Mears our guest today, is a local mom, wife and friend who is doing the most amazing work in our community through an organization she founded in 2019 called Project Protect our Children. https://projectprotectourchildren.com
Project Protect our Children is dedicated to preventing child sex trafficking, exploitation and abuse through proactive community engagement, preventative educational programs, awareness and empowerment opportunities.
A great place to start showing your support is by joining the Step Up For Freedom challenge.
It is a virtual challenge where participants commit to walking 79,000 steps in the month of July to spread awareness about the 79,000 trafficked minors and youth in Texas alone. Participants can walk or run at their own pace in any location over the course of the month. Sign up here: https://projectprotectourchildren.com/stepupforfreedom2021/
