Black children, too, are victims of the exploitation of vulnerable communities, a report by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) says.
It’s time for the government to do more to prevent, prosecute and protect those who exploit vulnerable communities for profit, the report says.
The report, entitled “Black Children Exploitation,” was released on Tuesday.
The NCMEC found that the exploitation rate among children under five was 40 percent, and children between the ages of 10 and 17 were victims of exploitation rates between 30 percent and 50 percent.
This rate is nearly twice that of the white population.
Black children are also more likely to be victims of sexual exploitation than white children.
NCMec’s report said that “Black children are exploited at a rate that is nearly four times higher than the rate of the general U.S. population.”
One-fifth of the victims are under the age of five, and their vulnerability is compounded by the fact that they are not provided with the services and services they need to escape abuse, the NCMCE report states.
The majority of victims are children from low-income families, who have been forced into prostitution or other forms of trafficking to support their families.
NCMEEC found some of the worst exploitation of children occurred in rural areas of Louisiana, North Carolina and Georgia, where the child victims were lured by the promise of jobs or other opportunities.
The children were lured to homes and businesses where they were forced to work, or were sold for sex, the study found.
The exploitation of young black women and girls is particularly common in rural communities, the commission found.
One study, conducted by the NCSD and published in 2016, found that children as young as 11 and 12 years old were exploited for sex in the same way that children under the same age are exploited in the sex industry.
The number of reported instances of trafficking was nearly double that of white children, the investigation found.
And while NCMCC has a mission to prevent trafficking and abuse, it has not made a concerted effort to prosecute perpetrators, the NMEC report said.
The study, however, does note that NCMECA has launched an aggressive enforcement program.
The agency has arrested and prosecuted more than a dozen traffickers, who are now serving prison sentences.
NCMCE has been working on the report since the 2016 report was released, and the commission hopes to release the report in 2018.
“I’m very optimistic that we will be able to get a report like this out there,” said NCMNCE President Robert Ritchie.
“The way we look at the problem is it’s a complex issue and we need to get it right, and we’re working very hard to do that.”
In addition to the NCMEOC report, the Commission on Human Rights and Democracy, an organization of African and African-American experts and human rights activists, released a report in November that highlighted the problem of exploitation in black communities.
The Center for Research on Globalization, a research and advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., conducted the report.
It found that, in 2013, the country had one of the highest rates of child prostitution in the world, and that African-Americans made up more than three-fourths of the estimated 1.4 million sex workers.
The trafficking of children has also been a major issue in South Carolina, where several black churches and other organizations are now holding “day of mourning” protests.
The protests were called after a police officer shot and killed the 17-year-old son of a black church member in South Charlotte.
The officer, Darren Goforth, who was black, has been charged with murder and has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
NCIW, an activist group, said the protests were meant to show support for the church and other communities targeted by the trafficking issue.
The group is calling for more resources to combat trafficking.
The state is also trying to create a national strategy to combat human trafficking, the North Carolina Observer reported.
The plan was announced in August, but the first report of its kind, released in September, failed to draw much attention.
The U.N. agency, which was founded in 1951 to help nations fight poverty and hunger, said in a report released last year that it had identified about 40,000 people, mostly children, who had been trafficked and sold for sexual exploitation.
The NMEAC report is the first comprehensive study of the trafficking problem in the U.T. The commission, the national office of the NMIE, said it was working with the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies to address trafficking.
“These are issues that need to be addressed in all aspects of the U of T community, including the state of emergency, law enforcement and the criminal justice system,” said commission chairman and U ofT President Dr. David McBride. “We are in
