Did you know children as young as 5 years old are forced into sexual exploitation? People often don't think that human slavery exists but the truth is it exists everywhere, even here in Canada. 800,000 people especially women and children are trafficked internationally per year. The richest global corporations don't profit close to the amount human trafficking does, an estimated $12 billion USD per year!
We need to ask OURSELVES how a horrific crime exploiting children and women can rake up to $12 billion per yer. How can we let this injustice happen? What are the signs of Human Trafficking, who can we call if we see victims/buyers/sellers? What is lacking in society or the individual (offender) who ends up exploiting children? Why are there so many buyers? And what is currently being done to prosecute or prosecute offenders of human trafficking in our neighbourhoods? There are so many questions that we need to answert to learn about HT and the signs of HT.
Please help me get this message out there by signing this petition, agreeing that it is wrong and you promise to be part of a community which recognizes signs of human trafficking victims and report human trafficking crimes by calling Crime Stoppers anonymously by dialing 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) OR by dialing 9-1-1 or your local police.
