Facts on Human Trafficking:
Human trafficking is considered a modern day slavery, touching every corner of the globe. This multi-billion criminal enterprise is the fastest growing crime in the world. Human trafficking involves both commercial sexual exploitation and labor servitude. The average age of entry for victims is 12-14 years old.
One of the goals of the Safe America Foundation is to work towards ending this crime, as well as helping others with opioid addictions and veterans with PTSD. The Foundation will discuss this and other topics on November 2 at the Federal Reserve Bank. For more information on the conference, visit https://trainingforglobalsafety.org.
