Fighting Human Trafficking

Fighting Human Trafficking

With each new year, we create goals and resolutions to eat healthier, exercise more or spend less money. However, it isn’t common for people to set goals of fighting human trafficking, homelessness or any of the other disparities we see in society today.  We need to do that.
December rounded out a year in which 2,500 individuals were arrested, suspected or charged with human trafficking activities in the United States. In Winter Haven, Florida, 103 individuals were arrested on charges including prostitution and human trafficking during a five-day undercover sting between November 27th and December 2nd.   More than 560 people over 18 years of age were rescued from being trafficked and nearly 970 children under year 18 were rescued.  There were 129 new laws passed to fight human trafficking and 621 community-based initiatives to fight trafficking.
In December in the United States, there were 200 individuals arrested, suspected, or charged with human trafficking activities, as well as 40 victims rescued, including five children under the age of 18. There were three new laws passed and 43 community initiatives.
Internationally in December, there were 170 individuals arrested, suspected, or charged with human trafficking activity, as well as 152 victims rescued, including nine children under the age of 18. There were two new laws passed and 13 community initiatives.
In 2018 as a whole, the combined totals there were 4,078 individuals arrested, suspected, or charged with human trafficking activity, as well as 4,675 victims rescued, including 3,763 children under the age of 18. There were 153 new laws passed and 808 community initiatives.
January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month and I challenge my Facebook friends to join the fight against human trafficking and to have honest and open discussions about human trafficking in America. This year make it a goal to learn the signs of human trafficking or participate in an event benefitting victims of human trafficking. To learn more, like the Shut-Out Trafficking Facebook page and follow End Trafficking on Twitter.

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

  6. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked
    hard on. Any recommendations?

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang
    of it!
