Human trafficking is a global phenomenon that, unfortunately, continues to thrive today and claim many victims. It is believed that 27 million people – men, women and children – are enslaved in almost every country in the world. However, it is widely believed that slavery doesn’t exist anymore. Today there are organizations using cyberspace to not only dispel the myth, but also motivate action on the cause.
The International Justice Mission has created a Facebook group to highlight this ever-present issue, with posted videos, newspaper articles and other resources to educate the public. The organization also urges group members to demand their local public officials to enact “harsher punishments for these offenders, and more comprehensive services in place to rescue and restore victims of human trafficking.”
“A human life is not for sale,” according to the group.
