Today we celebrate Independence Day. We celebrate those in the armed forces who protect us and guarantee our freedom. We also recognize those who work in office to pass laws that hopefully protect both the majority and minority. We are thankful for our freedom in this country. However, for those children and adults who are trafficked into the sex trade and labor trade they don’t have that much to celebrate. They are waiting for America to enforce the laws against trafficking to hold traffickers accountable.We need to continue to push for legislation and to raise awareness of this issue. Otherwise, we are failing the victims and survivors of this heinous crime.
Take a pledge today!
