Well no I mean Crimea is unique in that she has taken what happened to her and turned it into. Next million a year and send me amazing wonderful things. On black. Now at the its interest in one of the things that really got me on the working on fighting the -- human trafficking here in the United States. If I was shocked to learn that the average age of entry into prostitution for an American girl is twelve to fourteen. And it's even younger for for a voice. Eleven to thirteen. Children. That is the average age of entry in a prostitution is children. I think ten year old son. The idea that he and being sold for Sachs. Is absolutely nauseating. When you went to Jamaica -- -- Dude dude you know. We're actually getting into it and it did we use -- Mort that. Well when I went to Jamaica regionally as a diplomat in his -- console and political advisor to the US ambassador in Jamaica. On I wasn't sure what would be in my portfolio. But -- trafficking in persons report was one of the things in my portfolio is there. So I'd be keen to work with the government of Jamaica to get them to strengthen their laws against human trafficking to enforce their last they have. They have a problem in Jamaica we if women being trafficked in from the Dominican Republic and also from Eastern Europe. And -- I like. Many Americans is thinking of human trafficking is an international problem something that happens and developing countries it happens in styling it happens in India it happens in Jamaica. I thought. Brit too good in the United States this to happen unless -- developed country. Well when I got back to you laugh and realize that not only does it happen and it's really children make it sucked into the sex trade. But the United States is actually one of the largest union countries for illegal human trafficking services. And one night AT&T have realized that I started working with state representative Neil Abramson to change the laws here in Louisiana. Particularly -- a lot to protect domestic minor sex trafficking survivors. And we've worked to strengthen laws here in Louisiana. And on. Neil and I have worked for the past six years to try to strengthen laws here. And actually this past fall and the fall before a group co chaired hip international. Ranked Louisiana and number one and number two in the strength of our -- to fight human trafficking. So it's exciting that we're making progress. On to my work on the anti human trafficking task force. He year in new warrants to US attorney's office. And as well as the into a human trafficking task force that was to the state attorney general's office in Baton Rouge it's just -- different to the US attorney's office in baton arranged. But my co-founder. On a woman named Kathryn green. Is former assistant state attorney general and former head of the Louisiana into human trafficking task force and she and I. On after working on changing the lives working on these on multi. On fast -- task forces. To help survivors. Who realized at that point there was no harm in Louisiana for survivors of human trafficking. And if there's nowhere to go to recover from the problem of human trafficking. Then you end up. Either in jail right back on the streets there's no way to break the cycle says Catherine and I on the death decided. Somebody needed to provide sizing for survivors. Says the two of us got together and and it -- has here in New Orleans and we were the first town. In Louisiana for -- women trying to leave prostitution are who have survived human trafficking. We're gonna continues right after news you can do a cure and we're we're talking about the such -- -- entry. That most of the justice -- and I think we always think it was Third World or over there. Three years and really all of you and -- -- is executive director you know welcome can talk about exactly what you. Another extraordinary lady -- this -- me. Who was a victim of saturated with the prime time 212 to did you reporting to. And then came out. Found the courage. To come out. Received all kind of -- and -- who -- you use live.

That are buying this product five years ten years in jail and don't should shut it down immediately ended thefts. A common sense of cool question that's correct. Then isn't it the fact that the powers that be don't want the shot. And I think that on. Part of what we're doing at this point and part of what -- has his mission and is to change the culture around the sex trade and change there well weeks act. Mean there are lot of behaviors. That had been except we have public figures in office here we had. Accepted into public office and yet who have been found purchasing facts and being a part of the demand side of this industry. And do we except that is that somehow okay that manner. Aren't allowed to be man and I -- is just okay and part of what it means to be a man. On I think that we need to start addressing that this problem of on the purchasing. Sachs has been around for HS. And that we need to look at what that means prostitution is an effect endless car. Women are controlled. By tends to decent drugs and alcohol. They have beaten the -- -- it is a theory violent industry they're losing their children did losing touch with their families. And I think recognize same and that prostitution is not a victimless crime. Will help people realize we need to change and make cultural shift about what kind of violence against women will accept.
