JUST ASK VA
The Just Ask Prevention Project is a public awareness and prevention campaign designed to expose the growing prevalence of teen sex trafficking in Northern Virginia and to inspire our community to take steps to eradicate it. Teen sex trafficking is defined as ‘The act of inducing anyone under the age of 18 to engage in a sexual act in exchange for anything of value (money, drugs, shelter, food, clothes, etc)’. Many citizens are unaware that these horrific crimes are occurring in our community. Our objective is to decrease the number of victims by highlighting the typical profile of a victim and exposing the recruiting tactics traffickers use. Find out more about Just Ask VA
