Sex trafficking: Raising awareness and fighting this dangerous crime
Human trafficking is a longstanding global problem. Though data is limited by the clandestine nature of the crime, the International Labour Organization estimates that almost 25 million people were victims of human trafficking worldwide. We speak with Lynn Shaw of Lynn’s Warriors about why this dangerous crime is spreading even with increased awareness. Plus, we speak with Laura Bryant, a child advocate and co-author of Sage’s Law, about the young girl who inspired the legislation and how she was sex trafficked, not once, but twice, and survived.
