Around 2 p.m. every day, some men will use their corporate computers to make an appointment to have sex with a minor—and many of those appointments will occur on corporate property. Businesses, says Geoff Rogers, CEO and co-founder of the U.S. Institute Against Human Trafficking, are among the organizations that may seem to have no connection to sex trafficking—but can play a role in ending it in the United States, where thousands of children, many originally in the foster care system, are now victims of sex trafficking.
