New Video from Truckers Against Trafficking

I received a link to this video from Kylla with Truckers Against Trafficking. It's an altogether sad, but real story that thousands of teens face in the United States. The Department of Justice estimates over 300,000 people are trafficked into the United States each year. It also reports that a a runaway teenager will be contacted by traffickers within the first 48 hours of running away.

Here is the true story of a victim from Toledo, OH who was kidnapped and forced into prostitution. It's a hard video to take-in, but this is a hard problem we all face. Particularly if you're a trucker, or traveling, you can make a difference and can put a stop to this evil facet of trafficking in our country. If you notice anything suspicious, call 911.
