Everyone should have to listen to season 3

As someone who has worked with trafficking victims in Florida, I’m constantly blown away by the misconceptions and conspiracy theories surrounding trafficking, especially with minors. Kids who are trafficked are not stolen off the street and kidnapped, they are coerced and groomed by predators. Parents spend more time worrying about their kids being stolen from a public bathroom than they do worrying about who they are talking to online or spending time with. I recommend season three to everyone who needs more information about the complicated reality of sex trafficking. It is a tough listen, but it is an accurate depiction of how victims are targeted and exploited.
