Did you know that major sporting events are surrounded by a surge in human trafficking? In fact:
- I came across this article via Facebook and it was really illuminating.
- This website actually calculates the number of slaves that work for you based on your food consumption and products you own. I was shocked by my own results–58 slaves! 😦
- There are all kinds of organizations that work nonstop to help end human trafficking all over the world. In the USA the State Department even suggests 20 ways that individuals can get involved in the fight.
There are all kinds of ways that we as individuals can work to help bring an end to human slavery. As we here in the United States of America prepare to enjoy the Super Bowl, I urge everyone to take a moment to not only educate themselves but find something they can do to help the estimated 27 million people who are enslaved worldwide and the estimated 2.4 million people trafficked each year.
