Efforts to fight human trafficking expand globally and in the United States

The month of August proved to be a busy one for the fight against human trafficking. I am very pleased to share that in the month of August alone over 300 victims of human trafficking were rescued around the world, including more than 50 rescued in the US.
Other statistics from the month of August include that 115 people were charged in the United States with human trafficking offenses; 28 children under the age of 18 were rescued, there were four new laws passed to fight trafficking and there were 78 community initiatives to raise awareness about trafficking.
Internationally, the fight against human trafficking is increasing monthly. In August, 166 people were charged internationally, 27 children under the age of 18 were rescued, and there were 26 community initiatives to raise awareness.
It is encouraging to hear that the fight against human trafficking is growing and it is great that over 230 people were rescued this month, but it is also a sober reminder that there are still over 27 million people enslaved worldwide that need rescuing. As we start up a new academic year, I am looking forward to spreading the word about human trafficking to 10 new campuses around the country with the NCAS and the US Fund for UNICEF team led by our daughter Emily through our Shut Out Trafficking Program (http://apf.cdd.myftpupload.com/programs/human-trafficking/).
