What can you do to stop child sex slavery? Let me count the ways. Here are 5 things you could do right now. (We'll cover 16 more in future posts.)
1. Learn about what's happening. Child sex trafficking feeds not just on lust and greed, but also on silence and ignorance. One of the most effective things you can do is what you're doing right now by reading this blog: Get informed. The stories aren't pretty, but they must be told if we're ever going to stop this pandemic.
2. Read about modern-day abolitionists and learn what they're doing to rescue children, counsel them, and prevent others from being enslaved.
3. Find out what's happening in your own community. Research if your state or county has a human trafficking task force. Remember: Child trafficking is not just across the globe but often across the street.
5. Start a book club and have everyone read Terrify No More or Good News About Injustice both by Gary Haugen, Not For Sale by David Batstone, or Beyond the Soiled Curtain by David and Beth Grant. Brainstorm how you can become further involved.
Later this week, we'll look at more practical ways that anyone (such as you and I) can help stop the nightmare of child sex slavery.
