The Jubilee Project x Megan Lee teamed up for the short film “Back to Innocence”. Megan Lee portrays a child that has been sex trafficked. Throughout the video, she has flashback to her younger and more innocent times. It’s hard to watch, but illustrates the storyline from the child’s perspective. The film gives a voice to the millions of children who are forced and manipulated into sex trafficking every year. Inspired by the real injustices that children have to face, even in the United States, the film’s goal is to empower viewers to learn more about this important cause and to take action to help end sex trafficking. Join them in shining a light on this darkness and share this film with others.
Every year 1.2 million children are sold into sex trafficking. About 250,000 of those children are sold for sex in the United States. Most victims are either manipulated or abducted by their will. Many of them come from middle class families. The average age of children forced into sex trafficking in America is 11 years old.

In Job 33: 25-26, it is written about the healing power of God, “let their flesh be renewed like a child’s; let them be restored as in the days of their youth—then that person can pray to God and find favor with him, they will see God’s face and shout for joy; he will restore them to full well-being.” Innocence is more than a freedom from sexual exploitation; it is the dwelling in the mercy and love of a greater power who can free us from all things dark and cruel.
