CSA & TRAFFICKING

CHILD USA is working to end child sex abuse and sex trafficking by tackling the following areas:

What is Child Sex Abuse (CSA)?

CSA is “a form of child abuse that includes sexual activity with a minor“. A child cannot consent to any form of sexual activity, period. When a perpetrator engages with a child this way, they are committing a crime that can have lasting effects on the victim for years. Child sexual abuse does not need to include physical contact between a perpetrator and a child. Some forms of child sexual abuse include:

    • Exhibitionism, or exposing oneself to a minor
    • Fondling
    • Intercourse
    • Masturbation in the presence of a minor or forcing the minor to masturbate
    • Obscene phone calls, text messages, or digital interaction
    • Producing, owning, or sharing pornographic images or movies of children
    • Sex of any kind with a minor, including vaginal, oral, or anal
    • Sex trafficking
    • Any other sexual conduct that is harmful to a child’s mental, emotional, or physical welfare” (https://www.rainn.org/articles/child-sexual-abuse)
