The 2018 Town Hall panel discussion xplores racial, gender and economic inequalities in child sex trafficking. It is estimated that between 300-500 children are trafficked each year in Seattle. Sadly, this issue disproportionately affects children who are unstably housed, victims of sex abuse, economically disadvantaged, and persons of color.
