Social Media Post Circulates Misinformation on Sex Trafficking!

Recently, we have been seeing this image circulating again on social media. We wanted to remind you to fact check before sharing, as a ton of information on here is incorrect (pictured left)! (Pictured right) We have inserted some facts to debunk this incorrect informational sheet on the left!

CMSAC also provides professional and community training/education. Reach out to us if you are interested in one of our presentations (for example, on trafficking and exploitation).
