How big of an issue is human trafficking?
The United Nations has recently declared that,” Human Trafficking,” is now the second largest source of income for organized crime, worldwide. A 32 billion annual industry, modern day trafficking is a type of slavery that involves the transport or trade of people for the purpose of work. According to the U.N. about 2.5 million people around the world are ensnared in the web of human trafficking at any given time. Each year an estimated 800,000 (of the 32 billion) women and children, within national or international borders are sex trafficked for the purpose of forced sex work. Commercial sex exploitation includes pornography, prostitution and sex trafficking of women and girls. (boys and men, too, but the numbers are much smaller) Some sex trafficking is highly visible, such as street prostitution, but many trafficked victims remain unseen, operating out of unmarked brothels in unsuspecting—and sometimes suburban—neighborhoods. Sex traffickers may also operate out of a variety of public and private locations, such as massage parlors, spas, and strip clubs. View more facts about human trafficking here.
Can my business or church sponsor this 5K Fun Run/Walk to help defray expenses?
YES! We need all the help we can get, and every little bit counts. Contact our organizer, Susie Weigel, with any questions. Our goal is to raise as much money as we can to help bring awareness of human sex trafficking, and business and church sponsorships are key to keeping overhead and event costs to a minimum.
