Welcome to Children's Riot Utah.
One of the first states to join Children's Riot, Utah has hit the ground running. Although Utah was just ranked 4th out of all 50 states for its “excellence in childhood well-being” (Annie E. Casey Foundation), child sex crimes are an issue in every Utah city. From blackmail sexts to family members sexually exploiting a child, this is happening in even our most affluent communities.
“Every two minutes a child from the United States is trafficked for the purpose of human exploitation” (U.S. Department of Justice).
Our mission is to raise awareness of child sex trafficking, change laws to better protect children from trafficking and exploitation, and advocate for children who have become victims of these crimes. Trafficking comes in many forms. We’re taking a cold, hard look at the many hazards in our society that make children in Utah vulnerable. This includes social media, sexting, online predators, and pimps.
In 2018, over half (51.6%) of the criminal human trafficking cases active in the US were sex trafficking cases involving only children. (2018 Federal Human Trafficking Report.” The Human Trafficking Institute. Accessed July 31, 2019.)
We will give a voice to the voiceless. There is much to be done. Join the riot.
