The Senate created Human Trafficking Awareness Day to recognize the fact that modern slavery is not just present in third world countries, but even in a country as large and advanced as our own.
Otherwise known as Neo-slavery, human trafficking is a horrendous crime that has yet to be stopped. In fact it’s such a major problem in the United States specifically, tens of thousands of people every year are trafficked in and out of the states.
Use this day to recognize the importance of the problem of human trafficking being around or near us, everyday.
Consider responding to The Knightly News survey, below, about human trafficking.
If you or anyone you know needs help or would like more information about human trafficking, go to the National Human Trafficking Hotline website
