Only the morally and spiritually degenerate could have a conscience so seared that they would carelessly buy and sell women and children into sex slavery.

The time will come when more men will stand against exploitation in the following ways:

1. Get in the fight to end modern-day slavery. Whatever you do will help.
2. Support the work of the people who are on the front lines of this fight. Donate time and money.
3. Because this problem didn’t happen overnight, commit for the long haul. We can turn the tide over time.

Human Trafficking

Men have the power to stop human trafficking because we are the demand for this industry. No woman would ever volunteer herself to be violated; therefore, the sex trafficking industry seeks to take away her basic freedoms and dignity in order to sustain itself. Men must reinvent the moral compass in our culture that values women as the treasures they are.

For every one voice; every one donation; every one rescued; every one clothed; every one restored; we are one step closer to one dream to end modern-day slavery. Men have the power to stop human trafficking because we are the demand for this industry. Women are simply the supply, which is why girls and women are enslaved, raped, beaten, etc. No woman would ever volunteer herself to be violated; therefore, the sex trafficking industry seeks to take away her basic freedoms and dignity in order to sustain itself.

The Trafficking Victims Protection Act was first enacted in October of 2000 and continues to come up for re-authorization every few years. It’s going to take every willing person’s collective effort to help save the lives of an estimated 27 million people forced into labor and sex slavery. As constituents our voices are even more important to the disenfranchised victims who have no voice.

My family and I celebrated the New Year together, not taking for granted that we are all empowered with freedom. Many women and girls as young as my 12-year-old daughter have been stripped of that power. As we set goals for the New Year to do a little bit better for ourselves, let’s not forget the victims who are dependent on those of us that are free to empower them.
