As I was browsing Facebook last night, I came across a post from a local non-profit organization called Human Traffic Abolitionist Group (HTAG). After reading their latest post I realized January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. I also realized that this is a huge issue that really does not get enough attention. As a blogger with the ability to reach a lot of people I felt it was my duty to write a blog post on this issue and do my part to spread the awareness.
Human Trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery and there is an estimated 27 million people enslaved around the world with 13 million of those being children. Most victims are used for forced labor and sexual services.
Human Trafficking is not just a problem in other countries, this is happening here in the United States every single day! In fact The United States of America has the 3rd highest population of enslaved victims.
Please take the time to share this post with your friends, family and social media fans! The more people who are aware of this issue the faster we can help prevent another person from becoming a victim.
