LIFETREE CAFÉ EXPLORES CHILD SEX SLAVERY—IN AMERICA America’s growing child sex slavery problem will be explored at Lifetree Café on Wednesday at 7:00pm in the café and Thursday at 12:30pm in the Pool House at Candlewood. The program, titled “Child Sex Slaves: America’s Disturbing Secret,” features a filmed interview Pat McCalla, associate director of the documentary Branded, a film educating viewers about child exploitation in North America. “Child sex slavery has always been around, but it’s really exploding in our country right now,” McCalla says. “The average age of these children is 13 years old. That’s the average, which means there are kids who are even younger.” During the program, participants will learn how the growing child sex industry seduces children into the sex trade…the devastating results…and how to encourage children to stay safe.
