Human Trafficking is modern day slavery.  It comes in many forms.  Forced prostitution, bonded debt labor, child soldiers, domestic servitude.  Can’t believe it’s still around?  Actually, it’s bigger today than ever before. 

Why? Well, it’s complicated. The highly interconnected global economany, ease of transporting people across borders, sophisticated criminal networks, grinding poverty and disenfranchisement of potential victims, and demand for cheap goods and services combined with thoughtless spending by the wealthy — all of these are probably significant social and economic factors. 

But slavery couldn’t exist if there wasn’t an incredible capacity in the soul of a human to completely disregard the soul of another.

Let’s shine a red light on human trafficking and stop it in our generation.
