Human trafficking is a huge modern day issue.
I personally know two people in real life, that I’ve interacted with, who have been victims of sex trafficking. If I think about that long enough, it seems insane. How is this possible? How is it such an issue that I can know people, not just hear about it on the news?
When I saw this article from the FBI I was both happy for the work being done, and also reminded how there are so many more people who haven’t been reached yet
There are 27 million in bondage across the globe*
1-2% of victims are ever rescued*
The average age of a trafficking victim is 12 yrs old*
Those statistics are shocking.
Instead of being crippled by the problem, I’m glad to be a part of organizations that support A21 which actively fights to rescue victims and prosecute perpetrators.
