Shut Out Trafficking

Shut Out Trafficking

This May 2016, there were more individuals arrested, suspected, or charged in relation to human trafficking than in any other month so far in 2016. This was largely due to three major sting operations in Texas, Tennessee, and South Carolina. These resulted in the arrest of 23, 32, and more than 50 individuals respectively. It is astonishing how widespread this crime even is in our own neighborhoods.

Domestically, there were 233 individuals arrested, suspected, or charged with human trafficking activities, as well as 20 victims rescued, including three children under the age of 18. There were six new laws passed and 41 community initiatives. Internationally, there were 83 individuals arrested, suspected, or charged with human trafficking activity, as well as 35 victims rescued, including four children under the age of 18. There were five new laws passed and 14 community initiatives.

May 2016 also saw human trafficking activity around two major US sporting events: The Kentucky Derby and the Indy 500. I am proud that government officials and local organizations worked so hard to raise awareness and reduce human trafficking around such events. Their work inspires us to continue our dedication to Shut Out Trafficking, the joint effort of the NCAS and the US Fund for UNICEF, which educates college students and student-athletes on the reality of human trafficking.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30
    foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple
