The Georgia NAACP encourages Units, Leaders and the Community to support Amendment 2.  

 

Every year in Georgia, hundreds of Georgia's children are trafficked and exploited. Cases have been reported in 102 counties, covering over 60% of the state. The average age of a child victim of sex trafficking is only 13, and they can be as young as 9. 

While their stories may differ, these children have all been sexually abused and exploited - sometimes by someone they already know. For the children who survive, recovery is both intensive and costly - as much as $80,000 for only one year, depending on the services they need.

 

LET'S TAKE ACTION

Voters should approve Constitutional Amendment 2 on the November 2016 general election ballot to create the Safe Harbor for Sexually Exploited Children Fund. 

By adding the Safe Harbor fund to the state constitution, funds will be permanently protected and used solely for the purposes of providing restorative services to child victims. This ballot question was approved by 85% of the Georgia General Assembly earlier this year.
