The Pandemic and Human Trafficking


Coronavirus and demonstrations for rights of people have been going on for months. But lurking in the dark is another scary pandemic being swept under the carpet; it’s Human Trafficking. This billion-dollar industry forcefully kidnaps children as young as 12. The National Center for Exploited/Missing Children reports child abductions increased 90.46% since the lockdown. The issues of human trafficking should create moral outrage. Victims must be helped, traffickers must be punished, law enforcement needs better training, and as a nation we must work to prevent it.  If you suspect someone’s a victim of human trafficking, call FLORIDA ABUSE HOTLINE 1-800-96-ABUSE.
