Red Light, Green Light: The Evil Yet Ever-Existing Intersection of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking and the Foster Care System

The institution of slavery has long been abolished in the United States with the enactment of the Thirteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The term has changed, but the injustice still remains.
