You can read the rest here: “Slavery is Alive and Well … For Now.” And if you live in the US, you can click through on the link to ask your members of Congress to take an important step to combating child slavery internationally by supporting the Child Protection Compact Act.Tags: child sex trafficking child slavery child soldiers human trafficking ijm justice sex trafficking slavery sojourners
