A number as large as 27 million is nearly impossible to believe. But that’s how many souls are currently being enslaved for the illegal sex trade or forced labor around the world. As the A21 Campaign, says, “even one is too many.”
In our modern era, we view slavery as something from the distant past. To the contrary, more humans are enslaved today than 100 years ago.
Lest you think this is a third-world problem, the United States and Europe are epicenters for human trafficking. “This is primarily an issue for the lower class and illegal immigrants, right?” Wrong. In the United States alone, there are more than 100,000 children each year forced into the sex trade. Middle class girls are being taken from shopping malls in the heartland of America in plain daylight.
