SLAVERY STILL EXISTS

It's everywhere

IT'S EVERYWHERE

Every year, more than 2.8 million children in the US run away from home. Every year, one third of those children are lured into a secret world of commercial sex and forced labor. This is called Child Trafficking. You may have never heard of this before, but in reality, child/human trafficking is the worlds largest criminal enterprise. Even worse, 50% of all human trafficking victims are minors.
