Law & Order: SVU Brings Attention to Sex Trafficking in U.S.

Standard

How Can YOU Help?

According to this Huffington Post article, the U.S. is the number one destination country in the world for Sex Trafficking, and New York City is the #1 city within the U.S. for sex trafficking.

Something has to change.

With a rise in a awareness many campaigns against human trafficking have commenced.  Not For Sale is one of the campaigns which has formed.  They claim to work toward re-abolishing slavery.  Their website gives a variety of societal roles (for example students, athletes, businesses, and more) an opportunity to take action.

Even closer to home is an organization called Fighting Against Sex Trafficking (F.A.S.T.) at NKU.  The organization was started by student Rebecca Potzner.  Whether you’re an NKU student or a community member I would encourage you to get involved with F.A.S.T.  You can join the organization to participate fully, or just attend one of their events.

If hanging around a bunch of college kids isn’t for you, maybe you could volunteer for the Women’s Crisis Center. They offer 24 hour services to victims and could use your help.

If nothing else, watch this video. If you can make it through the whole thing. Then share it on your Facebook, twitter, with your friends and families. Encourage them to spread the word.
