With the recent development of COVID-19, the world as we know it has drastically changed. Most schools are shut down for the remainder of the school year, non-essential businesses are temporarily closed, and the economy and families are struggling to stay afloat.
However, as everything comes to a halt, human trafficking will not stop. In times of crisis, the vulnerable are at an even higher risk, and people will seek to take advantage of this situation (like Pornhub) to control and profit from others.
In times of crisis, human trafficking does not stop.
Neither will we.
Although some of our operations will change, we are still committed to fighting human trafficking, especially during this season. Here are a few ways we plan to continue our work:
