Episode 2: Our overly-caffeinated ladies (Kathleen, Amerey, Carly, and Lori) discuss the topic of human trafficking for National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, coming up on January 11th. A definition of Human Trafficking- the action or practice of illegally transporting people from one country or area to another, typically for the purposes of forced labour or commercial sexual exploitation. Each of us discuss when we first became aware of human trafficking.

Different Types of Slavery we discussed:
Sex slavery- prostitution is normalized in the media and on TV. Nevada is the only state in the US where prostitution is legal.
Labor trafficking- Hidden Girl by Shyima Hall https://www.amazon.com/Hidden-Girl-Story-Modern-Day-Child/dp/1442481684
We encourage you to seek out someone to have a conversation with and live counter culturally. We can be the generation that sees the end of modern-day slavery!
