Sex Trafficking

Leave a comment

In class we discussed sex trafficking. Most of us are under the impression that sex trafficking usually happens more frequently in foreign countries than in does in the United States. I was surprised to find out that it’s really a common thing all over the world; even in our area. Three years ago there was a sex slavery ring bust in Washington Co. Tn. That really hit close to home, because that is home. We watched a news clip about sex trafficking in northern Virginia where they busted a ring leader. Talking about how close to home where a lot of this was happening really surprised me. It’s caused me to be more conscious and aware of my surroundings because it’s really happening right under our noses.
