One out of three girls and one out of five boys are sexually abused, and they are sold 15-40 times every 24 hours by their trafficker. The event presenters will shed light on how Selah Freedom helps survivors by getting them into safe homes and working with law enforcement to ensure trafficking criminals end up behind bars. Northern Trust will host the event in support of Selah Freedom's important mission.
