Just how widespread is sex trafficking in America?

Why is it so incredibly difficult for the victims to ever truly recover and have healthy relationships?

How are sex trafficking and pornography connected?

And, what can we do to protect our children from sex trafficking?

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

In this episode, we’ll sit down with Jaco Booyens. The brother of a sex trafficking survivor, Booyens is the founder of SHAREtogether, which combats child sex trafficking. He is also the producer and director of the feature film on the subject, 8 DAYS.
