Today on the Signorile Show

3:30pm ET - Sex slavery; it's not just an international problem anymore.  American kids as young as 13 are now being enticed onto national networks of traffickers.  Recently, one such ring was busted freeing 105 minors.  Unfortunately, many of those kids are ending up behind bars.  Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show, we'll speak with Staca Shehan, Director of the Case Analysis Division at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to discuss this rising phenomenon and the criminal justice and social welfare system's inability to provide a way out.

4:30pm ET - On Saturday, August 24th, there will be a rally at the Lincoln Memorial followed by a march to the King Memorial in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.  SiriusXM's Mark Thompson, Joe Madison, and Ed Schultz will be broadcasting live from the event on SiriusXM's Urban View, channel 110.  Joining us now to talk about the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, Martin Luther King III.

5:05pm ET - The anti-vaccination movement has been growing, especially among the wealthy in this country, as parents want their children living a "natural" lifestyle.  This is happening as Jenny McCarthy is joining The View and coming under criticisms for her past remarks on the issue.  Alex Seitz-Wald of Salon.com returns to the show to speak with us about this trend and why it's so dangerous.
