Waging War On Human Trafficking
Slavery is thought of as shackles and chains and although that may exist to some degree, the majority of slavery exists in the form of coercion. Coercion can be done by holding families hostage, food supplies limited, and even threats against personal and family security.
Forced labor and sexual exploitation are the two most common forms of this injustice. Child trafficking has lead to over 20,000 children being kidnapped over year in China alone. The industry as a whole is growing, unfortunately, as human beings; mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, and daughters and sons are being treated as supply in this horrific trafficking market.
Human Trafficking is often viewed as an insurmountable problem. And although the scope is large, the first step to solving the issue and ridding our communities of human trafficking is simple. We need to come together and wage war on human trafficking.
What Does Waging War Mean?
It means changing our behavior of tolerance and ignorance to spreading awareness and fighting against trafficking in our communities. Waging war means taking action.
First step to taking action is to spread awareness. As people become more and more aware of human trafficking, the amount of those engaged in the solution will go up. Despite how staggering the numbers may be, we have the opportunity to stack the odds in our favor. We at Provision Lab look to enlist every community member possible into the war against human trafficking.
Next step is to give tangible ways for anyone and every one to play a role in the fight. Provision Lab is often approaching legislators and municipalities to increase engagement from our leaders. But it can't stop there. Every citizen has an opportunity to also engage in the solution.
