KATY (Covering Katy News) – The fight against sex trafficking has many forms. Recently veteran victim right’s advocate Andy Kahan and members of Ambassadors United stopped by Harris County Precinct 5 Constable Ted Heap’s office with stuffed animals and other necessities that deputies provide to crime victims of all ages. The items are used to make victims feel more comfortable after a traumatic experience.
“Ambassadors United is a local non-profit which is on the front lines of the fight against sex trafficking and prostitution. Their mission is to rescue people from all forms of enslavement, whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual,” said a social media statement from Precinct 5.
The Ambassadors United junior team donated and dropped off snacks, flower arrangements, crafts, and stuffed animals.
One out of three runaway kids is propositioned by a sex trafficker within 48 hours according to the organization.
“Parents: do you know who your kids are messaging and possibly trying to meet? It’s not snooping; it’s responsible parenting,” said a statement from the group. “Just last week, a youth pastor was arrested for soliciting 25 young girls at his church for sex. We must protect our kids…even if they briefly dislike us for being concerned,” the post also said.
Ambassadors United will host a parent and educator internet safety forum on July 13 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. There will be Free Chick-fil-A and Texas Roadhouse freebies at the event. For more information email email@example.com.
