January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month
Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labour, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. There are an estimated 20.9 million victims of human trafficking, and it is the 2nd largest and fastest growing criminal industry in the world, behind drug smuggling. The best way to combat this issue is by educating ourselves and our friends, family, and community.
Join IMAA on January 21 to learn more about human trafficking and the warning signs that someone is a victim of human trafficking. Contact Nisha Kurup at email@example.com or (507)-289-5960 ext. 110 if you have any questions or interested in attending.
