Human trafficking isn’t something that only exists in the developing world or vacation destinations in Europe. No, human trafficking is everywhere.
I appreciate grassroots organizations like End Slavery Tennessee. They are shedding light on the very real problem of human trafficking within the borders of the United States, but also offering solutions to combat it.
These stories will break your heart:
- Over 85 counties in Tennessee have reported at least one case of human trafficking.
- The average age of entry into sex trafficking, in Tennessee, is 13 years old.
- About 1,100 children are trafficked within Tennessee every year.
Can you believe it?
Just say it out loud: Tennessee has a problem with human trafficking.
