PCA 6th Annual Benefit Dinner
Fayette County Cares About Protecting our Children and Youth
Today, adults and children are being bought and sold for sex in the United States. This is not isolated to any geographical location, race, or socioeconomic class, nor is this a new problem. Sex trafficking has existed in our country for generations and it is time to take necessary steps that protect victims from men who purchase sex illegally and traffickers who sell people for sex.
Sex trafficking is the use of force, coercion or deception to recruit, entice, harbor, transport, provide, obtain, or maintain, another person for the purpose of commercial sexual activities.
If the victim is a minor under age 18, force, coercion and deception not required in cases of sex trafficking. Human trafficking, in the case of a minor is recruiting, enticing, harboring, transporting, providing, obtaining, or maintaining, another person for the purpose of commercial sexual activities.
In 2014, there were over 300 confirmed cases of domestic minor sex trafficking in Georgia—nearly one case every day. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation warns this represents only a fraction of trafficking incidents in Georgia.
FACTOR/PCA Fayette is ready to “Turn on the Lights” regarding this ultimate child abuse, at our PCA Benefit Dinner 2015, our 6th Annual event. The focus of this year’s dinner is two-fold; raise awareness of the issue of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children and raise much needed money for several organizations (listed with links for more information at left) who address Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) in Metro Atlanta.
The Benefit Dinner has always been a very enjoyable occasion where two dozen of our finest Community Leaders become servers for the evening dinner event. During the evening, there will be live entertainment, along with opportunities to bid on great Silent Auction Items. The event shares the strong message that the protection of our children is everyone’s responsibility.
