Child trafficking has been a problem for over three decades. Millions of children – boys and girls – have been subjected to untold abuse and shame.
The video show about the street march in a western province of Cambodia. The main objective of the march is to combate human trafficking.
Children for sale? Many will be shocked to learn that at least 1.2 million children and young people are exploited in the global sex trade each year, not just overseas but right here in the U.S.
Take a stand and help make strides to end child trafficking with the purchase of Soft Hands, Kind Heart Hand Cream. Not only is the non-greasy moisturizing formula kind to your hands, but it is also symbolic of a kind heart – as each purchase supports The Body Shop's "Stop Sex Trafficking of Children and Young People" campaign.

As thousands travel to Dallas for the Super Bowl - Texas law enforcement officials are working to prevent a serious, but little known crime.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is calling child sex trafficking an “ugly underbelly” of the greatest show on earth, and says the Super Bowl is commonly known as the single largest human trafficking incident in the United States. (Video: KXAS)
According to estimates from the Texas attorney general’s office - 10,000 adult and underage girls have come to previous Super Bowls. The Dallas Women’s Foundation estimates this Super Bowl could see as many as 38,000 underage prostitutes.
And while headlines are exploding about the problem, some say it’s nothing more than fear-mongering and propaganda. Still others say the problem is very real. (Video: KPTV)
The Ellis County Observer calls all the news on sex trafficking during the Super Bowl “overblown” and the outcry a “hysteria.”
“There are little boys and little girls emulating fertility rites every spring… Underage prostitution is bad, but really, I think this is so overblown that we don’t need a Super Bowl in North Texas to tell us it’s there.”
But Family Security Matters’ Robin McFee says that doesn’t mean the problem shouldn’t be addressed.
“We as a society have to loudly voice ‘enough is enough!’ These are not victimless crimes… We as a society must stop turning a blind eye to the sex industry & human trafficking, and stop thinking 'it’s only sex.'"
Finally - a blogger for the Blogistan Polytechnic Institute points out - no one knows for sure how big the problem of sex trafficking is -- but wonders why it seems everybody but the Super Bowl Host Committee is talking about it.
“I guess I can understand why they wouldn’t want to get involved in efforts to publicize this problem, but their job is to organize the event. That includes helping coordinate vehicle traffic. Shouldn’t it also include helping to reduce human trafficking?”
According to the child advocacy group Klaas Kids Foundation and Miami-based Kristi house, sixteen underage prostitutes were found working near the Super Bowl last year in Miami.
