In our communities, insidious crimes like human trafficking often lurk in the shadows, hidden from public view. However, a ray of hope is breaking through the darkness as stories are beginning to be exposed. The highly anticipated "Sound Of Freedom" movie has become a powerful catalyst, raising concerns and igniting questions.
It's essential to recognize these at-risk populations so we may better address the root causes of trafficking. In order to implement effective prevention, spread awareness and support survivors, we must take action to eliminate human trafficking.
Understanding who these sex traffickers are and how they operate is crucial in combatting this irreparable violation of human rights.
Based on the cases reported, as of 2020, Nevada had the second-highest rate of trafficking in the country, second to only Mississippi. Let's build awareness and increase prevention to end trafficking of humans! Humans are not a commodity to be bought and sold, we must put a stop on this business.
