13.3 Million


13.3 MILLION men, women & children are trafficked for commercial SEX and LABOR today.
A number to think about. Do you know 1 thousand people? How about two thousand? Do you know 1million people? How about 13.3 million?

This is more than a number- these are lives. If you were trafficked, you would be traded, like an object, purchased for what...money? Used for what...labor? SEX? This is happening every day, this is happening right now.

Beyond Human Trafficking!



Not for Sale is a anti-human trafficking organization which has the motto: "re-abolish slavery."   I like this organization because they present the facts in a eye-catching, emotional and motivational manner, with high end marketing and graphics.


"Join the first cause to launch a company ...
Not For Sale is launching REBBL, a bottled tea tonic sourced in high-trafficked and vulnerable communities around the globe. Set for grocery store distribution in late 2012, REBBL will create jobs for vulnerable communities of the Peruvian Amazon. REBBL stands for freedom, and for Roots, Extracts, Berries, Bark and Leaves."


The reason it is important to be proactive in situations like this is because rescuing victims of human trafficking is only half of the solution! Efforts such as R*E*B*B*L are used to create jobs in vulnerable communities to prevent exploitation of otherwise, unskilled workers!

Modern-day Slavery: Not So Far Away




 I conducted a hand full of interviews and used resources from notforsalecampaign.org as well as and interview with Nia Bates from ratanak.org .  My goal was to see how people of all ages felt abou this issue, form middle school children to a mother with children.  I wanted everyone to relate and get heads turning and hearts pounding. As I presented this video in class I asked, "Why is this such a hard topic to address?"  After a pause, I promted the 38 college kids, "You are telling me that NONE of YOU have an opinion on this issue?"  Finally, an attractive, athletic, tall young man raised his hand (he's looks like he is one that has the "cool" heir about him).  He said, "You wouldn't just start talking about something like this... it's so random... it's controversial." 


How is SEX TRAFFICKING controversial 
What majority of people SUPPORT sex trafficking?  "Do you really think it's controversial- allowing people to trade and get money for raping women?" 
If YOU do not take a stand, WHO will?

IGNORANCE is NOT BLISS.
