THE PROBLEM: Trafficking men, women and children for exploitation is THE fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world. * Human trafficking is a 32 billion dollar industry. * Seattle is the third most active city in terms of child prostitution in the nation, and a hub of a trafficking circuit that includes Portland, Vancouver, and Yakima. A SOLUTION: You can make a difference in this growing epidemic. The GENESIS PROJECT is a Seattle non-profit that provides food, shelter, clothing, hygiene, long term housing, and continued mentoring to women who have escaped explotation. The women come from referrals by local police, other survivors and the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force.
