Its all around us whether we want to believe it or not, human trafficking, child exploitation, children sold as sex slaves. What are the signs? Has it been in front of your face the whole time but you have failed to notice it? Is a home in your neighborhood one that houses these victims? What can you do as a concerned citizen? Are people you communicate with on a daily basis indeed pimps or Johns? What are the warning signs? Can you make a difference
Social media plays an important role when it comes to finding children but it also plays an important role in how a child goes missing. Now a days few parents know their childs login to their social media. By using social media we have found that these children will actually plan out how they are going to runaway. Social media is widely used by pimps and pedophiles to lure children into their hands. Smooth talking and fake profiles designed to lure these children is very common. Knowing your childs login and passwords can greatly aide in finding your child if they do decide to runaway. Every parent must remember that when a child decides to runaway they never intend to become a victim of child exploitation or human trafficking. Be aware of your childs activity, monitor that activity and learn the techniques to review your childs social media.

It's sad but true: right here in this country, people are being bought, sold, and smuggled like modern-day slaves. They are trapped in lives of misery, often beaten, starved, and forced to work as prostitutes or to take grueling jobs with little or no pay. The victims include some of the most vulnerable in society: abused children who've run away from home, women with few job skills, immigrants who fear deportation or retaliation against their families overseas if they speak up. For them, there is little hope of escape.
the problem of "human trafficking"—discussing its scope within the U.S. and, more importantly, detailing our growing efforts to help free these victims and disband the criminal enterprises behind these hateful crimes.
The problem of child prostitution: who the victims are and how the criminal enterprises that exploit them operate.
The "Innocence Lost" initiative: what it is and why it's making an important difference in finding victims of child prostitution and putting pimps and other criminals behind bars.
The "Stormy Nights" investigation: how it ended a ring of child prostitution at truck stops stretching from Florida to Colorado.
It’s sad but true: here in this country, people are being bought, sold, and smuggled like modern-day slaves.
They are trapped in lives of misery—often beaten, starved, and forced to work as prostitutes or to take grueling jobs as migrant, domestic, restaurant, or factory workers with little or no pay. We’re working hard to stop human trafficking—not only because of the personal and psychological toll it takes on society, but also because it facilitates the illegal movement of immigrants across borders and provides a ready source of income for organized crime groups and even terrorists.
Mrs Rosa Bernard moved to Indianapolis from Denver in 1998 and joined Barnes United Methodist Church. She immediately became involved with the local chapter of the United Methodist Women organization. She served as Social Actions Coordinator for the Southern Indiana Conference for four years.
In addition, she served as secretary for the Steering Committee during the realignment of the Northern and Southern Indiana Conferences. And for the past 8 years served on the Bishop's Episcopacy committee and later as secretary. Presently, she serves on a Human Trafficking Team through the Women's Division and had her training in 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia.
In September 2011, Mrs Bernard and the UMW Mission Team traveled to Brazil, where the Ubunti Team shared information in two cities Sao Paula and Fortalezza. We are delighted to have such a well versed person speak on the subject of "Human Trafficking".
Mrs. Bernard explains Ubunti " is the essence of being human. It speaks of the fact that my humanity is caught up and is inextricably bound up in yours. I am Human because I belong. It speaks about wholeness, it speaks about compassion".

Today we will share the legacies of two individuals who have put themselves on the frontlines in the fight against the crimes of drug and human trafficking.
Robert Mazur served 27 years as a Federal Special Agent for the IRS, Customs Service and Drug Enforcement Administration. Five of those years were spent under-cover as Bob Musella, a high-rolling mob-connected big shot who infiltrated the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels.
Bob’s under-cover stings proved critical in the conviction of General Manuel Noriega and helped cripple an international multi-billion money laundering outfit that served drug lords like Pablo Escobar. His new book, The Infiltrator, provides vivid and nail-biting details about his life in the criminal under-world, including events that led to a $500,000 contract being placed on his head.
More than three decades after India won freedom and independence from Great Britain, a little girl from the southern region of India was stolen from her family and became a slave. She was seven years old. She lost her home and her identity. She kept only her first name – Rani.
When Rani lost her value to her slave owner, he sold her to an American woman who thought she was legally adopting an orphan. This adoption saved Rani’s life and the love and support she received in her new home has cultivated a commitment to become an advocate for the voiceless victims of human trafficking and a leader in the movement to end modern slavery.
On Monday, February 3rd, Dr. Annie Abram and Ms. Vednita Carter, Founder and Executive Director of Breaking Free, will discuss Human Trafficking.
"Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. Victims who are forced, defrauded or coerced into labor or sexual exploitation. It is estimated that approximately 800,000 to 900,000 victims are trafficked annually across international borders, and between 14,000 and 17,000 of those victims are trafficked into the US. These estimates include men, women and children. Trafficking is a crime which is often hidden from view and difficult to identify." (http://iiconn.org/human_traffic.html)

Human trafficking is a serious issue in the United States and from big cities to small, rural communities, it is growing.
According to a report by the Polaris Project on the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline, 41 percent of sex trafficking cases and 20 percent of labor trafficking cases referenced U.S. citizens as victims. In 2013, Florida ranked third in the nation in number of calls received by the NHTRC.
