Human trafficking is a $150 billion industry worldwide and it affects us all. The things that drive human trafficking are our oversexualized culture and our materialism. Sexual addictions and entitlement to sex along with greed drives sex trafficking and materialism partnered with an individualized culture where we have trained ourselves to not be concerned with people outside of our circles drives the labor trafficking industry.

Because we all are affected by human trafficking and in one way or another, we all have contributed to it, this $150 billion problem is for all of us to take part in solving.
