Polaris Project, an organization which leads in the global fight against human trafficking and modern-day slavery, shared the image below via Twitter last week, recognizing that homeless LGBTQ youth are vulnerable to trafficking.
Why do you think so many homeless youth are LGBTQ? What services are needed to help these often discriminated children? How do we work to minimize the number of homeless youth who are trafficked?

All youth deserve shelter, education, and services where they feel safe. http://t.co/FxVoKDD1oN #Pride
