January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month

Human Trafficking Awareness Month

This coming January we will spend the month focusing on the issue of human trafficking.  According to The Imprint, Youth and Family News, victims of sex trafficking reported the following:

  • 63 percent reported involvement with the child welfare system and a staggering
  • 95 percent reported a history of child abuse and/or neglect
  • The largest number (49 percent) had been sexually abused as children
  • 33 percent experiencing physical abuse
  • More than half reported that the maltreatment began when they were 5 years of age or younger
  • All but a few described the onset of maltreatment as age 10 or younger

These statistics are alarming. As a community we need to learn more about the issue and what we as individuals and community at large can do to protect our children from being trafficked.
