"Closer to Home" by The photo installation class at GVSU

There are more slaves in the world today than at any other time in human history. Sex trafficking is a huge part of this trade. The issue of sex trafficking has become more exposed to the public in the last decade but many in the U.S. still view it as a problem in far off countries.

There are estimated to be 325,000 CHILDREN trafficked for sex in the United States alone.
The average age of entry into the commercial sex industry in the U.S. is between 12 to 14 years old. -The Polaris Project

The photo installation class at GVSU is addressing the issues of sex trafficking and how it is a topic that is closer to home than you think.
