0

Slavery was abolished in 1865, but it still exists in the form of human trafficking.  It is now a world crisis.  Human trafficking activist, Carol Metzker, wants something done…

Speaking on the impact of slavery today, she titled her talk “Passion to Action: Human Trafficking.”  It was the second part of speaker series.  So what are the costs of an industry forces people into sex work or forced labor?

She focused on the victims brought to the U.S.–80% are sex workers and 13% are laborers.  She gave advice to listeners that if they think they know of someone who might be a victim, always make a call to police or a hotline.  “If you make a call and you are wrong, nothing happens, but if you make a call and you are right, you could save a life.”
