Global trade is not inherently bad. However, it often focuses on efficiency at all costs, lower prices, and little consideration for social, economic and environmental impacts. Large-scale consolidation of power in supply chains has resulted in fewer options for consumers, farmers and workers, and unprecedented wealth controlled by few.
Human trafficking occurs every day and across the United States. Sex trafficking is a common form. In simple terms, it is modern day slavery, where people profit and control the sexual exploitation of others. There are roughly 3,000 sex trafficking cases per year. Even with that number, we should not live in fear; we just need to stay alert, aware and informed.
