Murrells Inlet, SC - Betty Houbion is a human trafficking, both sex and labor trafficking educator, advocate, and one of the most influential voices in raising awareness. Betty’s unwavering mission to make certain that one day, we will eliminate the horrors of human trafficking and she is determined to achieve it.
“The bigger challenge, besides fighting against it, is to reduce demand. It’s also important in educating our most vulnerable population about the very real dangers and horror of human trafficking and ways they can be easily lured by predators. In addition, we must teach political officials, children, parents, and police officers the reality that it’s also more rampant and must be addressed more frequently in our communities.”
Betty reminds us how the obscenely wealthy own the actual resorts where brought boys and girls are trafficked, making it an even bigger challenge to overcome. The average age of the sex victim has shifted now from very young girls to women in their thirties creating an even more widespread probem.
Betty encourages supporting Polaris Project, with whom she works closely. Polaris Project is a U.S. based anti-trafficking NGO where we can all share our voice of protest.
“Through Polaris project, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to meet survivors of trafficking and share their harrowing, incredibly inspiring stories.”
In spite of death threats and opposition, Betty continues her mission.
“Human trafficking affects every one of us and only by continuing to create change can we protect ourselves and each other.”
