Defending Children Against Sex Trafficking with Selah Way

Defending Children Against Sex Trafficking with Selah Way

Recent news can be depressing with the amount of hardships children in our country our facing. Statistics revolving around sex trafficking are alarming and unacceptable. But, one organization is out to make a difference.

Selah Way Foundation is fighting the battle with their campaign pledges. Both men and women across the country are joining forces by donating funds and time to the organization’s Champion Defenders Circles.

“Sex trafficking generates annual profits of nearly $100 billion, according to the International Labour Organization, making it the most profitable form of slavery the world has ever seen,” states Elizabeth Melendez Fisher, CEO & Co-founder Selah Freedom & President The Selah Way Foundation.

She continues, “According to recent police reports, Harvey Weinstein, R. Kelly, Robert Kraft, and John Havens allegedly have been engaged in sexual behavior that is happening every day across our country and world. At Selah Freedom, we know that sex slavery, in particular, persists because illegal organizations enable men to purchase adolescent female and male bodies for sexual gratification with little to no penalty. This illegal activity does more than simply launder money and evade taxes, it more harmfully fuels the theft and slavery of children. Childhood ends when sexual abuse and trafficking begin.”

More than ever it is important to find a way to take a stand against the abuse. The average age of sexual abuse entering a child’s life is 2 to 4 years old. The organization is an army forming groups to change this. Each uniquely chosen ambassador in the newly launched Champion Defenders will use their platform and influence to engage the community and raise up partners to further The Selah Way Foundation mission. Champion Defender Men’s and Women’s Circle members will create a network to relentlessly pursue freedom for the next generation through financial support and advocacy.

Noted Melendez Fisher, “Our society has been groomed to believe that these are willing women. The world needs to know that this is not a choice. Little girls have been groomed their entire lives and have no way out. They have been manipulated and sexually abused from a young age, eventually leading to their coercion into prostitution against their will. Fortunately, Selah Freedom and the Selah Way Foundation are positioned to raise awareness and provide solutions for survivors. Victims who were exploited and abused are coming forward, and law enforcement has significantly more insight and ability to shine a light on the darkness of this horrific criminal behavior. It’s time we all stand together and start defending our young girls and boys.”
