Episode 99: Human Trafficking – Part 2

Our kids are getting exposure – wouldn’t we rather it be from us instead of other kids at school? This is true of so many things, and trafficking is one of them. Actually, our youth are the biggest targets and victims of trafficking globally. Equipping them with the knowledge of what trafficking looks like is one of the most powerful things we can do to help fight it! That’s what Rasha and Youth Underground are here to do.

Last week, Rasha, the founder and CEO of the Youth Underground organization, came on the show to educate us about all things trafficking. We discussed the different forms that trafficking takes and who the victims and the perpetrators are. Something that I learned is that trafficking does not discriminate against age, gender, race, or geographical location – this is taking place all around the globe to all kinds of people!

Now, Rasha is back to give us the information we need to fight this heinous crime. And guess what? The solution starts with us! The more we know, the more we can do to prevent human trafficking, and the more we can share with those around us on how to do the same. Rasha has some great advice on educating ourselves and the youth in our lives so that we can actually make a difference.
