Commercial sexual exploitation of children is one of the fastest growing human trafficking crimes in the world.
Did you know? 200,000 children in the U.S. alone are at risk every year for commercial sexual exploitation. -Polaris Project
Stylite’s goal is to fight this injustice and to influence change within our community.
1. As Stylites, we are fighting to our peers – 75% of those who prostitute do so because they are homeless, and pimps supply emergency housing. Stylites and Shoe Revolt will work together to create and support housing for victims in the U.S.
2. As Stylites, we are fighting for our peers – We believe society labels and turns our peers into the things that were done to them. We will educate society to see our peers as victims rather than a criminal. They have the potential to be successful, happy and fulfilled people.
3. As Stylites, we are fighting to heal our peers – 90% of those in prostitution were sexually assaulted as children. At a tender age, many girls faced trauma, neglect, violence, and poverty instead of being surrounded by love and support. Stylites and Shoe Revolt will support and create more rescue shelters that offer a total holistic approach to recovery.
We invite you to take a stand, to get involved, and to Join the Revolt.
