Stop Child Trafficking Now

This Sunday, I will be walking to Stop Child Trafficking Now. As difficult as it is to believe or even consider, slavery continues in many forms throughout the world. One area that has gotten more exposure lately is the trafficking of children, primarily for the sex trade. This is happening right here in the United States.

UNICEF estimates that child trafficking is a $12 billion dollar a year business with over 1.2 million child victims. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 200,000 American children are trafficked into the sex industry each year. As a mother, I can't bear to think about this happening to people. But not thinking about it won't make it go away. We have to take steps for that to happen.

Here is some additional information to consider:
