OCAP: Trafficking in Teens: The Sexual Exploitation of Oregon Kids
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Room 110
Contact: Leslie Harris • Email
Portland is a major hub of sex trafficking in adolescents, mostly girls, and disproportionately teens of color. The problem extends through Oregon and up and down the I-5 corridor. The law is conflicted about this issue, making it possible to prosecute girls for prostitution even though they are too young to consent to sexual activity.

Come learn about new laws that focus on the traffickers, efforts to help the teens, and why solutions are so difficult to find.

Speakers:
Lynn Haxton, attorney from Youth, Rights and Justice, who represents teens who have been charged

Joslyn Baker, Multnomah County Collaboration Specialist working on an effort to end the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children

Pizza will be served.
