This is actually what I thought the group was about at first. But did you know there are more than 30 Million people that are enslaved, right now? That's more than there ever have been, at any point in history.
Human trafficking is a huge global problem.

Shannon It is :( It's horrible :(

I watched a video about it in social studies and it was heart-wrenching :(

There were these innocent children who thought that they should go with these "nice people" and get a job to send back money to their families :(

It's sad :(

Yes, thankfully every so often, someone is a real hero :)

But yeah, the whole industry is pretty repulsive. I didn't realize it was so widespread until I read this book, The Road of Lost Innocence The True Story of a Cambodian Heroine by Somaly Mam It's the true story of a woman who escaped.

Sold by Patricia McCormick This one's actually fiction, but I think it portrays it pretty accurately.
