Victimizers can look like everyday people. That is something parents and children need to understand.
They hide in plain sight. They could be in your family or be one of your neighbors. It’s ugly, but true. That’s why your children need to be taught how to recognize the signs of trafficking. Not just for themselves, but for others.
You can armor children against this type of evil through prevention education.
Whether you support our program or a local program, it is vital to ensure that your children or your friends’ children have been taught how to avoid this happening to them or prevent it from happening to those they know.
This story is in the news. You may be asked about it by your children. If you can stomach it, please read this story as a cautionary tale.
We are apolitical. This story about Jeffery Epstein is developing, and we believe it is important enough to share because it is on television and children are going to see it, have questions, and when you’re asked about it, you need to have answers.
- From one New York Post article. “In 2005, the world was introduced to reclusive billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, friend to princes and an American president, a power broker with the darkest of secrets: He was also a pedophile, accused of recruiting dozens of underage girls into a sex-slave network, buying their silence and moving along, although he has been convicted of only one count of soliciting prostitution from a minor. “
- From the Miami Herald. “Beginning as far back as 2001, Epstein lured a steady stream of underage girls to his Palm Beach mansion to engage in nude massages, masturbation, oral sex and intercourse, court and police records show. The girls — mostly from disadvantaged, troubled families — were recruited from middle and high schools around Palm Beach County. Epstein would pay the girls for massages and offer them further money to bring him new girls every time he was at his home in Palm Beach, according to police reports.”
- From the Miami Herald “During the reporting, the Miami Herald went to federal court in New York to access sealed documents in a civil case filed by one of the victims, Virginia Roberts. She alleged that Epstein and an associate operated an international sex trafficking operation. The case was settled in 2017 and the documents sealed. In August, a judge denied the motion. We are appealing.”
