Milwaukee’s Sex Trafficking Epidemic and the Impact of Re-Victimization on Our Youth

Milwaukee continues to be one of the nation’s top sex trafficking hubs. The commonalities we see in youth experiencing sexual exploitation include Milwaukee’s pervasive central city poverty, segregation, lack of housing that is affordable, low wage-earning potential, violence and generational trauma. But what impact does how we talk about sex trafficking make on those who’ve experienced it? 

Whose job is it to care for those who’ve been exploited to make sure they aren’t victimized again as they exit unsafe situations? It’s everyone’s job. And there are actionable ways that individuals and systems can support those who’ve been exploited.
