This past week I came across a couple of new developments in the field of anti-human trafficking and decided to share them with you. Please encourage anyone who might be interested in the issue to review this educational information. It’s never too late to become a modern day abolitionist!
First, Free the Slaves has joined hands with CNN in a yearlong reporting initiative which will emphasize cases of modern-day slavery. The initiative is called CNN Freedom Project and the videos featured in the first week of the project are available on Free the Slaves homepage.
Second, an email from Children at Risk informed me that Volume 2, Issue 1 of the Journal of Applied Research on Children (JARC) focuses solely on the issue of human trafficking as it relates to children and stresses the importance of spreading awareness, becoming involved in the fight, and eventually eliminating the horrible practice. Children at Risk is a non-partisan research and advocacy organization dedicated to addressing the root causes of poor public policies affecting children.
