The Pimp CultureMisconceptions that lead to Demand for Commercial Sex Demand for this crime exists because WE tolerate it Prostitutes and strippers portrayed in movies, video games and music Three 6 Mafias song Its Hard Out There for a Pimp won an Oscar in 2006 "Big Pimpin'" was the most successful single from Jay-Z's fourth album, reaching #18 on The Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Rhythmic Top 40

chart. Misconception: Pimps protect the girls they manage Facts: (1) Monetary quotas to avoid beatings Branding to demonstrate ownership Typically take all the money Quote from a pimp: its impossible to protect all girls from guyswe eat, drink and sleep thinking of ways to trick young girls into doing what we want.

Human Trafficking 101 Who is involved in trafficking? The recruiter gains the victims trust and then sells them for labor or to a pimp. Sometimes this is a boyfriend, a neighbor, or even a family member. The trafficker is the one who controls the victims. Making the victim fearful through abuse, threats, and lies the trafficker gains power over his/her victim.

The victim could be anyone. The consumer funds the human trafficking industry by purchasing goods and services. Often s/he is unaware that someone is suffering. The Trafficker Will likely be in a lucrative business enterprise as the heart of human trafficking is exploiting cheap labor May be part of a larger organized crime ring, or may be profiting independently Most often is the same race/ethnicity as the

victim Might be someone who knew the victim or victims family Will likely be bilingual Will likely be an older man with younger women who seems to be controlling, watching their every move, and correcting/instructing them frequently How are People Recruited? Grooming Internet, social media

Fake employment agencies Acquaintances or family Newspaper ads Front businesses Word of mouth Abduction Human Trafficking and Technology Social Networking Pimps hit social networks to recruit underage girls to engage in commercial sex The pimps "searched Facebook for attractive young girls, and sent them messages telling them

that they were pretty and asking if they would like to make some money" If a girl expressed interest, a gang member would arrange to meet up. At that point, participation stopped being voluntary.

Regardless of their demographics, victims are vulnerable in some way, and the traffickers will use their particular vulnerability to exploit the victim. Youth Poverty Unemployment Homelessness Family backgrounds of violence, abuse, or conflict Runaways Immigration status A need to be loved

No meaningful social network A Vulnerable Life Before Victimization* Of boys and girls recruited into commercial sex: 57% had been sexually abused as children (1) 49% had been physically assaulted (1) 85% were victims of incest as girls, and 90% had been physically abused (2) Nearly half the participants in one study had been molested or raped as children or teenagers. (3) * These studies considered various forms of commercial sex, not only sex trafficking. Due to the hidden nature of the crime, little research is available strictly on trafficking. However, it should be

noted that anyone used in commercial sex who is under 18 or is being forced or coerced is a victim of trafficking. 1) Melissa Farley & Howard Barkan, Prostitution, Violence Against Women, and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, 27 WOMEN & HEALTH 37-49 (1998), available at http://www.prostitutionresearch.com/ProsViolPosttrauStress.html. 2) Hunter, S.K., Prostitution is Cruelty and Abuse to Women and Children, 1 MICH.

What are the next steps? Why do I care? Human trafficking in in OUR community and is GROWING. The AVERAGE age of entry into commercial sex is 12-14 years old. We have failed to protect these children. They could be your daughter, your sister, your brother, your friend. What Can You Do? Commit to NOT participating in the commercial sex industry Sign the Pledge

To not purchase or participate To hold friends accountable and demand their respect To take action on behalf of those vulnerable to sex trafficking Take part in creating cultural change Encourage education for youth on topics such as healthy relationships, self-identity and life skills Support local organizations that serve victims of human trafficking What Can You Do? Talk about it The direct connection between prostitution, lap dancing, and strip clubs and missing and exploited children In interviews, Johns admit that they would be deterred from buying sex if they were held criminally and socially

accountable Speak out Dont tolerate or use the lingo When prostitution is portrayed as a choice or funny in movies, talk about the reality Dont glorify the pimp culture Share the facts with others If you believe someone is a victim of Human Trafficking. 911 Then Indianapolis Trafficked Persons Assistance Program 24-hour hotline: 1-800-928-6403 National Human Trafficking Resource
