I became aware of human trafficking a few years ago, and I’ve forever been changed.  I didn’t realize that so much is considered human trafficking: Article 3, paragraph (a) of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons defines Trafficking in Persons as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs. (UNODC, Human Trafficking, 2014)

It’s affected me so, I’ve dedicated a page on my site here to enlighten others of the scourge. I also wrote a short story, FREEDOM IN CHAINS, so any money made could go to MillionKids  to help in the fight against this insidious crime.

Want to help? All it takes is 99cents and a willingness to take your BLINDERS OFF. You’d be surprised to see how near human trafficking is to your own home.

FREEDOM IN CHAINS, A Short Story

September 15, 2010, a young woman, dubbed Lizbeth, was rescued from the manacles of human sex trafficking. Freedom in Chains is the fictional glimpse into her world from the inside. It is meant as a celebration of her new life and an awakening for the rest of us. Blinders off! Human trafficking is a crime against humanity and is as close to us as our neighbor next door.
