MSNBC’s expose “Children for Sale“
Statewide Resources – Ohio
we are focused on ending this, with a revolutionary and historic campaign that focuses on the demand side of trafficking. We have elite special ops teams that are ex-military men coming back from fighting the war on terror. They are Navy SEAL type guys that have infiltrated hamas, hezbollah and al qaeda and now use the “highly skilled” talents to infiltrate child sex rings-they gather information and intelligence-then “gift wrap” the case for the FBI, CIA, Interpol etc…we are filling the gap law enforcement can’t fill because of gangs, drugs, illegal arms etc…we are currently coordinating a 50 city, 300 college campus walk in September..
What Can I Do About It?
If this disturbs you like it does me, and you want to do something about it, here are some suggestions to get started:
2. Learn. Visit some of the resources I’ve listed below and educate yourself. Do your own research. Sign up for newsletters and mailings from these organizations. There is so much information out there – and these are just a few resources – but the more we all know, the better we can be prepared to fight against this scourge that seeks to destroy life.
3. Support. Join up with any of these organizations and provide your time or money. Participate in local events providing education and awareness.
4. Fight. There may be someone reading this who wants to seek an internship with the Home Foundation or the International Justice Mission. Support an individual victim who is in recovery. John the National Grassroots Network of the Polaris Project. Visit the links below, find local resources and join up in a more active way.
Here are some other suggestions if you feel the need to DO something about human trafficking.
If you still aren’t convinced that this exists or that there is no need for rescue, most of these sites offer sections with victims stories. Visit here. Or here. And here. And here. There are more… They are endless…
The Home Foundation (Natalie Grant)
In the dark blackness of this world of human depravity, we must shine the Light so darkness is forced to flee. It begins with education, but does not have to end there. It does not take a lot of money – it may not even take a lot of time. But every little effort helps.
