7 Utah Lawyers Accused of Polygamy

"Well, first of all understand it. If you're somebody though that would advocate and go to your state Representative or your Senator your governor, you have the ability by going into our side, and I can give you the sixty state legal brief or a summary of that for your state. You're going to find out what you have what you don't have. You don't have to be an expert. You can take that right in you can be a part of the advocacy, but you know, we develop services all of the United States. So we developed models. We don't just say, let's change them a lot. We're going to find ways for these children to be treated as victims of a crime. So another big chunk of what we do is we work with state systems. My background was a state legislator over children and families services. So we develop systems. That say once you don't arrest them. This is the path they go, and they are a child in this category. You already should be serving them. No don't say we don't have the money you wouldn't say that for other victimized children. You would put them in the system has one of the highest needs child. And so we are working that. And that is another systematic, but extremely important. So everyone in your state, we're working with states to make sure that they changed their systems, and when that child is identified in commercial sex, they are taken to a path of a victim of violent crime and not put in a suit cavity searched and thrown in jail. It's unbelievable to hear this. There are people listening all of the country and around the world, in some cases. If you feel Dodd tugging on your heart to get involved in this go to shared hope dot org, we need to put an end to this. This is horrific. These are children. There's no doubt about it.

"Hey, folks is here taxes show talking to Linda Smith about very serious and important subject that affects all of us within realize it or not so listen, the book is invading the darkness inside the fight against child sex trafficking in the United States, Linda, you were just saying on the break that this book kind of connects people to all of the different players because this is a kind of a big movement with a lot of different pieces. You just made a huge point that you've you have connected. This issue to the missing persons issue. I mean, we all remember at some point and enough was the eighty seventy you see kids on milk boxes milk cartons, and you become aware that their kids that are missing. And their parents have no idea where they are. You're suggesting of course, the logical link to prostituting children that these kids are runaways or something and they get sucked in by some nefarious figure into a world of prostitution, and they're not heard. From. And that's that's where they went. Yes. I remember the first time that I I sat down with Ernie Allen. He was the no I don't know how many years thirty some years of the president and original chair of the National Center for missing and exploited children, and he was editing. The book had his writing renting lacy and we'd known each other for a long time. I think since I was in congress, and and he said, Linda, you have to do this. You have to make this book as hard and as accurate, and he said because I've been saying this now from the beginning when the National Center for missing and exploited children, Linda, I kept saying I know where they're going. They're going into commercial sex going into monogamy. They're not just missing they're going missing. And somebody knows where they are. So his first cases actually happened to be what we would call traffic, two males. And they were being moved into these men rains. We would call the younger ones. Pedophilia. Some of them had older ones. And these boys were buried underneath one man's house. Eventually, I'm so this whole case opened up his is that these children were being exploited and not moved very far from their own homes. Well, we know with traffic children often, they're not very far from their own homes. They can go missing their children and be not better few blocks or maybe a town away. So they created the national Senator be sure we worked on this collectively. So as he and I were talking and working together. It was clear that the next level shared help had to do was run a change in every state's long. So we were sure that every state was trading. This sang these victims of a crime gone missing into the commercial sex industry. Well, the the connection is is extraordinarily because you, you know, this is the kind of thing that everybody. I mean, I can't tell you how often. I'm asked because I speak on Wilberforce rather often people say who who are the Wilbur forces of today. What is going on today say well slavery was abolished in England. So there's not going to be another Wilberforce of today. But God is always wanting to use people for his purposes, and you're one of those people that people who are the Wilberforce of today, there's not one, but there are many you're one of them because you need help you need people that are listening to this program who say what can I do you don't feel called to this? Or that whatever this is an issue for our time. And we need the more, you know, about it the more you realize how big it is. And how real it is. And how we need to work against it. So I don't know who's listening there. People all over the fifty states who listen to this program. But this is the kind of thing that it is a scandal that in the United States of America, we can sit here and know that this is happening, and that law enforcement is able to eradicate it that even sometimes the laws don't work in the right direction. This is a huge issue of our time. And I want to say it again to people listening. I hope other folks listening who wanna help and want to do something. And if this would be like a great textbook because you have so many links in the book invading, the darkness is their website that people can go to. Yes..
