Article & Interview By: Debbie Stokes
Human trafficking is at an all time high. Lately, we have been bombarded with incidents all over the news about missing woman and children. In some cases, they are being snatched from the streets of America and lost to the world of trafficking. This epidemic has put women and children in fear. Hearing about the increased abductions, we can’t help but worry about our safety and the safety of our kids as we go about our day.
The trafficking business is inundated with top level people (doctors, lawyers, businessmen, law enforcement, servicemen, etc) and lower level people behind the scenes making a lot of money. In fact, this market is producing billions. It’s no wonder it’s challenging to stop the practice.
The important thing is we must be vigilant, not just for ourselves, but for other women and children. We must learn to care for each other and you know the saying, “If you see something, say something.” That’s the only way we will be able to attempt to put a dent in the problem. We have to speak up. It just may save a life.
In addition, we can no longer assume our children know how to handle themselves or that they pay attention when out in public, we have to practice and continue to reinforce street safety over and over again.
With that said, I introduce to you Ken Henry, an Anti-Human Trafficking Specialist who will talk to you about the growing problem of human trafficking and how you can stay safe. Catch his video interview below.
