Human trafficking affects all parts of the globe, from suburbs to rural communities to large cities and border towns, and its effects are devastating. The founder of the anti-human trafficking advocacy group John DiGirolamo estimated that the average age of migration is between 12 and 14 for girls and 11 and 13 for boys. And the life expectancy of human trafficking victims is less than 7 years. But there are survivors, and DiGirolamo shares extraordinary, personal accounts based on actual events in his eye-opening new book, It’s Not About the Sex: True Stories of Human Trafficking from a Law Enforcement Officer, a Survivor, a Brothel Madam, and an Advocate.
