Human Trafficking Awareness

By UN reports, "1 in 3 women have been abused" in one form or another.

Not only at home or by someone they know, but from those numbers,
" Two million girls aged 5 to 15 are taken into the commercial sex trade every year." - UN reports

Florida is the third highest state in the United States for sex trafficking, these are imported girls and exported American girls. These girls are deceived, and/or kidnapped, beaten, many times drugged, and brain washed. They are not allowed to leave. The average girl can be sold up to 20 times a day. Thousands of girls were imported to this years Super Bowl alone. The statistics are staggering. They are heart breaking. People are NOT for sale. Women do not deserve to be treated as property. I'm simply writing all of this because not nearly enough people are aware. Most people know that it goes on in other countries, but it's happening here.

One of my buttons is orange ( 1 in 3 women have been abused) because orange is a symbol of freedom and it has become the color of a movement to stop sex slavery. For more information on sex trafficking, check out: wwww.runforfreedom.net. Bring awareness! Pray. These girls need to be rescued.
