Human Trafficking Awareness Day

January 11, 2009

"...that all may have life, and have it abundantly."  John 10:10

Did you know . . .  

   After drug dealing, trafficking of humans is tied with arms dealing 

as the second largest criminal industry in the world, and is the 

fastest growing.  

  Approximately 800,000 people are trafficked across national 

borders, which does not include the millions trafficked within 

their own countries. 

  In the US alone 14,500 to 17,500 people are trafficked each year.   

  80% of trafficked people are women and girls. 

  50% of trafficked people are under 18 years of age.
