“When I first started doing this work, youth were often mislabeled as delinquents, runaways or substance users. But the core issue was that they were being sexually exploited,”

Jessica Munoz is the founder and president of Ho'ola Na Pua organization that she wants you to know how easy it is for kids to get trafficked. You may not realize how much danger your own backyard can be in if you're not paying attention, but Jess will show you that even something as simple as looking at social media posts could put people in grave danger.
