Modern Day Slavery
People everywhere are being bought and sold against their will–right now in the 21st century.
Phrases like ‘slavery’ and ‘human trafficking’ can feel ambiguous but the reality is:
Slavery is violence.
Slavery is physical abuse.
Slavery is verbal abuse.
Slavery is sexual abuse.
Slavery is forced prostitution.
Slavery is barbaric working conditions.
The good news? Slavery is more stoppable than ever!
There are no limits to age, caste, colour, class, sex, creed, or race. Traffickers target any and all vulnerabilities in people, in practically every country around the globe.
While there’s virtually no country where trafficking doesn’t exist, some places have more vulnerable people than others.
For the purposes of sexual exploitation, forced labour, domestic servitude, child begging, child soldiers, and organ harvesting.
