Is Child Sex Trafficking The Epidemic Operation Underground Railroad Says It Is?
In her article, Atlantic staff writer Kaitlyn Tiffany calls concerns over child sex trafficking in America a moral panic. Of course, sex trafficking does happen, but, Tiffany writes, it’s not nearly the problem many OUP volunteers make it out to be. The statistics they give are inflated, the data is often misleading and the motivating language sometimes feels like it's been pulled straight from a QAnon conspiracy theory.
Tiffany joins us this Friday at 11 a.m. to talk about Operation Underground Railroad, the realities of child-sex-trafficking and how social media is helping to fan the flames of a new moral panic.
