“Protecting Innocence” is a collection of works by artists Sara Dresher, Marianne Lettieri, Micah Salinas, Julian Curi & Kay Chernush of ArtWorks for Freedom.

It is a form of modern day slavery that profits from the exploitation of our most most vulnerable populations. California harbors 3 of the FBI’s 13 highest sex trafficking areas in the nation: Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego.
