Sometimes a photo does say it all.

It isn’t something we want to talk about. It’s something that happens to someone else, somewhere else. But the reality is that it happens here too:

Between 100,000 and 300,000 American children are forced into prostitution, pornography, and other forms of commercial sexual exploitation every year.

Let’s change it.

About Kate Bartolotta

Kate Bartolotta is the strongest girl in the world. She is the love child of a pirate and a roller derby queen. She hails from the second star to the right. She doesn't know how to behave with all the apples and ibexes. She doesn't suffer from her eight million freckles, she loves them! Like a rolling stone, Kate gathers no moss. Kate loves kale, being barefoot, Dr. Seuss, singing too loudly, gallivanting, palindromes, blackberries and has far too many books for her own good. When she's not writing, you can find her practicing yoga, running in the woods, playing with her kids, devouring a book, planting dandelions, changing the world and doing her dishes. Kate does not play the accordion. She is a massage therapist, writer and a compassionate friend to all. This year Kate aspires to finally give up on learning to knit and will instead spend that time putting a little bit more of her heart on the page. Connect with Kate on Facebook and Twitter

  2. This is a huge problem. So glad to see it's getting more international attention. There's also been a couple films on the subject lately. Thanks for posting, Kate.
