So you wanna know more about sex trafficking?

I’m psyched that some of you are interested in learning more about the issue of sex trafficking. This is the point of these blogs….to get you guys fired more to read more about it and spur you to action!

First place to check would be the The US Dept of State’s annual TIP Report. This is a great report detailing each country’s progress and highlights those working in the field.

You can also check out the temporary site for my and Okey’s Making Noise page. There we have some statistics and video you can watch.

You can also read about the anti-trafficking campaign the United Nations INTERREGIONAL CRIME AND JUSTICE RESEARCH INSTITUTE did in Nigeria. It was a great initiative!

Happy reading you all, and keep your questions coming:)

ciao!

    Leslie,

    Keep up the great work! Sounds like you are finally establishing yourself in Turin. Your stories are like reading a novel… I have been in contact with my fellow Zontians and they are following your blogs and they say are emailing too. I look forward to hearing more soon.

    Connie
