bringing a voice to 27 million

Human Trafficking is:
the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of 
persons:by the threat or use of kidnapping, force, fraud, deception or coercion, or by the giving or receiving of unlawful payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, and for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor.

[::: face the facts :::]
-27 million slaves
-between 600,000 and 800,0000 are trafficked internationally
-17,500 slaves trafficked into the U.S
-Nearly 3 out of every 4 victims of human trafficking are woman
-Half of modern day slavery are children
-An estimated $9.5 billion dollars is produced through trafficking

{::: ignorance is not an option :::}
{::: freedom for those with no voice :::}

"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." --13th Amendment to the Constitution that freed all slaves on December 6, 1865

::please watch the 1st episode of the FREEDOM film from passion 2012::

 ::: there are so many great non-profit organizations doing everything they can to bring freedom to those who are trapped in slavery and have no voice, check out some of the ones below. as christians we are called to be the hands and feet of christ, and to bring hope to those who have none, the simplest thing we can do to bring an end to slavery in our generation is to be educated on what it is and to educate others :::
