Join the fight against local sex trafficking
TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- In a single night, more than 230 girls are sold for sex services right here at home in the Tri-Cities.
With many recent sex trafficking scandals and arrests, locals say it's time to take action.
United Way has partnered with the Support Advocacy and Resource Center and they're asking you to join the fight again sex abuse and trafficking in our area.
It doesn't take much to make a difference - a small donation to SARC, or even helping someone you know who might be in danger.
"Now is the time for the Tri-Cities to stand up and fight," said United Way CEO LoAnn Ayers. "We have to do something really proactive so that we can stem the tide and it doesn't keep increasing and affecting more kids, more families."
If you need help, or see something out of the ordinary, you can call their 24 hour hotline at 1-888-846-7273.
