Is There Human Trafficking in Your Hometown?

Not For Sale/Screen capture

For anyone who thinks that slavery actually ended when it was abolished in the U.S. in 1865, here's another reminder that that simply isn't true. It's just hidden now.

So here is a map that needs no further explanation: Just visit SlaveryMap.org and click around on the map to find cases of human trafficking, whether they were reported by a news outlet or an individual witness.

The map is a project of the Not For Sale Campaign, an organization focused on human trafficking that you should visit to learn more about this widespread and modern problem.
