Nevada Child & Youth Sex Trafficking Report Card –

Nevada, in particular Las Vegas, is one of the most common destinations for traffickers to sell children for sex and for buyers to purchase them. Our state has been taking positive steps forward to support commercially sexually exploited children (CSEC)1 , most recently through the passage of Assembly Bill 151 and Senate Bill 293 in the 80th Session of the Nevada Legislature in 2019. Assembly Bill 151 provided the framework for the state’s child welfare agencies to accept reports and ensure services for all CSEC, regardless of their relationship to their trafficker. Senate Bill 293 (SB 293) required the development of a plan to establish the infrastructure to provide treatment, housing, and services to CSEC
