Went out into the streets of Southeast Houston pushing the #ProtectOurDaughters education and awareness campaign spearheaded by @queendom_come_inc along with a coalition of organizations. During a recent press release, our sisters informed everyone that the U.S. Department of Justice reports Houston as one of the largest hubs for human trafficking in the nation and the largest hub in Texas. Houston has over 200 active brothels, with two new openings each month. Houston is a popular entryway for internationally trafficked persons due to its two large, international airports and the Port of Houston, which is the largest international port in the United States and the thirteenth busiest in the world. $1.6 Billion is made off sex trafficking in Houston…As we talked to our people on the block and door to door, they were shocked to hear about these statistics. We encouraged all men, young and old, to step up to respect, elevate and protect our women and girls. The work continues.
