What do you really know about sex trafficking? Although trafficking of women and girls for sexual exploitation is a global problem, hard statistics on the numbers of women involved, and in which countries, are close to impossible to come by.
It is impossible to come up with an accurate number of those suffering through this appalling crime, an estimated and I mean estimated figure, a 2005 report from the U.S State Department states approximately 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders each year, with 14,500 to 17,500 trafficked into the U.S.
These numbers are shocking, yet despite this a most wonderful Non Profit called A21 ( Abolishing Injustice in the 21st century) is fighting to save lives and make change. Join us as Bianca Olthoff, representative for A21, shares how they are triumphing and making a real impact over sex trafficking. Hope springs eternal, and they will not give up.
It's good to talk.
