YES, sex trafficking is a problem. YES, people are being held against their will, even in America. Kevin Malone, former Dodgers VP and GM, has spent the last ten years trying to free people from the sex industry. He is the President of the US Institute Against Human Trafficking. Anyone who thinks making it “legal” and “safe” will eliminate the slavery aspects of sex work is deluding themselves.
Senator and Presidential candidate Kamala Harris has called for decriminalization of sex work. As Kevin explains, decriminalizing it only increases demand.
