UM: Human Trafficking

CNN runs an opinion piece by Bridgette Carr, a UM law professor who directs the Human Trafficking Clinic at the univeristy’s law school. Carr writes that the problem of trafficking for the sex industry affects both adults and children in the U.S., and she proposes strategies to address it. “Individuals who travel abroad to purchase sex from children are demonized in the media and identified as sexual predators, yet individuals who stay in the United States and pay to have sex with children are given the anonymous title ‘john’ – and frequently aren’t even charged with a crime. Individuals who pay for sex with children in the United States should be punished.” [Source]
