Sex trafficking occurs when adults are forced into prostitution or other sex acts for money. According to the University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago is a hotspot for sex trafficking and found that “16,000 to 25,000 women and girls are involved in the commercial sex trade annually, with one-third of them first getting involved in prostitution by the age of 15 years, and 62% by the age of 18 years.”
