Don’t Forget Us – Human Trafficking in America
As I look through the news, I tend to see titles around international trafficking, such as “US to declare China among worst human trafficking offenders”. I am glad the issue is getting press coverage and that there is pressure on countries to do something about it. That said, I want to ensure that there is awareness of this problem in our own backyard.
