slavery, it’s still here

29 Mar

Slavery is something that people thought had ended years ago. When people think of slavery today they think about when Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves back in the 1860s. Today there are over 27 million slaves still in the world. Slavery today is more than just labor. Sex slavery is huge all around the world; over 90% of all slaves today are in sex trafficking. Girls as young as five years old are being captured and sold into slavery. Something needs to be done. It has been done once and we can well do it again.
