The Fight Against Human Trafficking Grows to Meet the Growth of Human Trafficking

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Independence Day. The holidays are always a special time to be with family, but it is important that we do not forget those people who are suffering. Human trafficking remains a constant problem in our society. It is as important as ever that we come together and do our part to help fight human trafficking. Along with the 4th of July holiday, the MLB All-Star game is right around the corner. Big sporting events such as these are always a target for potential human trafficking threats. I urge anyone who is in attendance to be aware and proactive in protecting the potential victims of this horrendous crime.
In June, domestically, there were 117 individuals arrested, suspected, or charged with human trafficking activities, as well as four victims rescued, including two children under the age of 18. There were five new laws passed and 46 community initiatives.
Internationally, there were 143 individuals arrested, suspected, or charged with human trafficking activity, as well as 543 victims rescued, including 518 children under the age of 18. There were no new laws passed and nine community initiatives.
These numbers can only be improved if we come together as a community and acknowledge the severity of this problem.
I continue to challenge my Facebook friends to have an honest and open discussion about human trafficking in America.  Then support the work of some anti-trafficking campaign.  Learn about it and then fight against it. Today, human trafficking is the second largest illegal activity in the world and sadly, it is also the fastest growing. To learn more, like the Shut-Out Trafficking Facebook page and follow End Trafficking on Twitter.

    I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion,
    if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. I think that everything wrote was very reasonable. But, what about this?
    suppose you added a little information? I am not saying your information is not solid, but what if you added a post title that makes people desire more?

    – Institute For Sport and Social Justice is a little plain. You
    should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post
    headlines to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture
    or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.

    I’m extremely impressed along with your writing skills as well as with
    the format on your blog. Is that this a paid subject matter or did you customize it yourself?

    look a nice weblog like this one today..
