Every child deserves to be given a chance to be a child. Every child deserves a happy and safe childhood. Every child deserves an opportunity for a bright future. There are 16 million children living in poverty in the United States. Twenty children’s lives were lost in Newtown, CT recently. These children did not get a chance to become adults.
Exactly what is human trafficking? Children being bought and sold like material goods. Children being forced into prostitution. Children being made to work at grueling and dangerous jobs with little or no pay. Children whose childhoods are being stolen.
One child is one too many.
