What makes TassaTag so important?
There are between one and two million children, under the age of 18, enslaved in the sex trade around the world. It has been estimated that as many as 5,000 children a year are trafficked into the United States, and thousands of American children are trafficked across state borders. Many of these children around the world are exploited by travelers, of which approximately 25 percent are men from the United States.
