Freedom Walk to fight sex trafficking
For the second year, The Genesis Project will host The Freedom Walk.
The Freedom Walk is a fundraising event to raise money and awareness about the issue of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking in the greater Puget Sound region.
King and Pierce Counties are estimated to be in the top 3 places in the US where “Johns” go to exploit young boys and girls, and there are approximately 500 underage victims being sold for sex in the Seattle/King county area alone at any given time.
The idea behind the ‘Freedom Walk’ is to walk the same streets hundreds of women and children are forced to walk every day, according to Andy Connor of the Genesis Project.
“What it’s like for them and the dangers they face on a day-to-day basis,” Connor said. “And, what they have to go through while they’re walking this walk.”
