The A21 Campaign - Maria's Story

The A21 Campaign is striving to end human trafficking all over the world and abolish it within the 21st century. Human trafficking has long since been made illegal but the law has not stopped this injustice from continuing. Until recently victims of sexual trafficking were penalized by the law, facing charges of prostitution and criminal punishment for illegal activities they committed by force from their pimps while those trafficking them walked away with simply a misdemeanor. Georgia passed a law just a few days ago that changed this, increasing the punishment for anyone and everyone assisting in the trafficking of humans for non consensual sexual acts and other areas around the world are following suit. Read about how you can make a difference by volunteering, donating, praying for specific things, or even sponsoring a child.
