“Noy Thrupkaew: Human Trafficking is all Around You: This is how it Works” and “Slavery in the fields” both have a common theme. Both of these stories make the claim that human trafficking is widespread across a spectrum of industries and that consumers are fueling the problem. However, this subject is far more complicated than one can see. The first piece brings attention to the gruesome circumstances of human trafficking victims. The second piece is very loose in what it interprets as human trafficking.
Human trafficking, or trafficking in persons (TIP) or modern day slavery, is a heinous and widespread crime occurring around the world in nearly every society. Most people often thought slavery was part of the past; however, human slavery is part of our current society and has been an on-going issue around the world. Human trafficking is a type of slavery that involves forced or bonded labour, sexual servitude, child labour, or involuntary servitude all over the world. It is important to note that sex trafficking contributes to more than half of human trafficking and most of these victims are women and young girls. This modern day slavery can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at anytime (Ton, 2012).This literature review of documents and reports
Veteran Homelessness On any given night, approximately 49,000 American veterans are homeless, men and women that served our country and fought for our freedom (Unique Issues). Most are suffering from traumatic brain injuries, physical disabilities, and some are over the age of 50 (Unique Issues). Veteran homelessness continues to be a persistent problem. A system in which increased funding goes to housing and providing care to veterans would drastically help these peoples if not homelessness will continue to grow because of the United States’ involvement in the Middle East.
Discrimination is an injustice and can have devastating effects on individuals who are targeted. There are numerous regulations, laws and codes of practice to promote diversity and everyone’s right to fair and equal treatment, ensure equality and end discrimination. One example is The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). This act makes it unlawful to discriminate against anyone with a disability. Every organisation, by law, is required to have a policy in place relating to disability.
With all these programs, everyone would think that there would not be many homeless veterans in the United States, but people with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder cannot deal with the flashbacks of their friends dying, other things that they have seen while they were at
According to the article “Hotline Statistics,” in 2016 alone, there were 1,057 reported cases of human trafficking related to labor work with a total of 7,572 cases of trafficking. Regardless of the 1,057 individuals that were trafficked for labor, there isn’t a lot of awareness in regards to this problem. However, Noy Thrupkaew, the speaker of Human trafficking is all around you. This is how it works, talks about the reality of slaves in our lives; whether they are sold into labor or used for sex, and the eye opening statistics that are related to the labor trade. In addition, the excerpt “‘Guests’ in the fields,” is written about migrants, who are working towards a better life, and get caught in the snare that is human trafficking.
It’s sad but true; here in this world, people are forced into being slaves for a $150 billion criminal industry, a form of modern slavery: Human Trafficking. It’s a horrendous crime against humanity, that is not legal anywhere but happens everywhere. The media is an indispensable vehicle through visualizing the problem, educating and mobilizing people and building a hope for us to come together and end this crime forever. Freedom is a human right.
Now after listing some of the official organization that are using technology to help end this form of slavery, I would like to list some of the ways we, in this modern age, can help end this grievous crime. It might be easy to hear the facts about human trafficking, but fall into the false idea that it is simply up to our government and other such groups to deal with this important issue, and this is simply not true, in our technology advanced day and age it is now easier than ever to help do our part to help end this horror. Anyone can and should join in the fight against human trafficking, we can do this by, learning the indicators of human trafficking so you can help identify a potential trafficking victim. Human trafficking awareness training is available for individuals, businesses, first responders, law enforcement, educators, and federal employees, and many others. You can work with a local religious community or congregation to help stop trafficking by supporting a victim service provider or spreading awareness of human trafficking or encourage your local schools to partner with students and include modern slavery in their curricula.
“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil but by those who watch them without doing anything”-Albert Einstein Human Trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of sexual slavery, forced labour, organs removal, commercial sex exploitation and economic exploitation. Normally, trafficking is done by threat, compulsion, abduction, fraud, misleading, abuse of power, vulnerability, giving payments or benefits to a person in control of the victim .Trafficking in person is a serious crime and dignified violation of human rights . Most of people nowadays do not know that human slavery still exists; after it was abolished 150 years ago, its proven when there is an auction of young women intended for sexual slavery occurred publicly in Britain highly policed location and another auction even took place in front of a café at Greenwich Airport, Britain (News by BBC UK, 4 June 2006, 14.31 GMT). These crimes have been booming and become a global phenomenon when victims from at least 153 countries were detected in 124 countries worldwide between 2010 and 2012.
Indeed human rights have failed to achieve its goals in many countries around the globe due to economical and political diversities. According to Himalayan Foundation, 20,000 Nepali girls are enslaved. The recent Rohingya refugee crisis and genocide by Burma has questioned human rights defenders. WHO reports say that around 125 million girls and women were victimized of Female Genital Mutilation in 29 countries in Africa, Middle East and Asia. Surprisingly more than 2000 victims of FGM have received treatment at London Hospitals in last three years, reported by Martin Bentham in ‘London Evening Standard’, 2013.
Planned Parenthood gives affordable healthcare through tax money and donations to the people of lower classes that cannot afford a regular healthcare provider. Last year, they received 528 million dollars which many other organizations, government officials, and presidential candidates do not agree with. Presidential candidates are among the many that still do not agree with funding Planned Parenthood with taxpayers money while men and women can not pay for any health care alone. One of the largest stereotypes about Planned Parenthood is that more abortions are made than any other practice. The largest service they perform is STI screenings which are 42 percent while abortions are only 3 percent.
With my project, “Community Coalitions for Awareness to End Human Trafficking” (or CCAEHT for short), I want to shed light on human trafficking, a trans-national crime which victimized over twenty million people in 2012 (ILO). As someone who believes that news coverage and social media can make a difference, I find it appalling that so many innocent lives have been ruined, yet this pressing matter receives little public attention. The organ trade, sex slavery, and child prostitution are things people just don’t want to think about. Certainly, it is disturbing
”(www.hrw.org) Consequently, when evaluating the evidence that is present it is safe to say, that despite all of the efforts that are put forth every day to protect our youth, some people still have the potential to prey on those whom cannot defend themselves. The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 has afforded the public with ammunition to fire back at those who prey on the vulnerable. Therefore, the foundation has been laid, for the public to build upon and grow with the knowledge that we are able to obtain to keep our children safe. Furthermore, we cannot solely rely on law enforcement, and others to keep our children safe we have to be proactive within the

Ms, Kuzma presented the Attorney General’s position on human trafficking.
