Human trafficking is modern day slavery. Traffickers use force, fraud, or coercion to lure victims into labor or sexual exploitation. Every 30 seconds someone becomes a victim of human trafficking. 50% of victims are under 18 and 25% are children. Michigan is ranked 11th in the U.S. for human trafficking. 1 in 5 homeless youths in Detroit have been victims of human trafficking. One year ago the human trafficking epidemic was brought to my attention, and since that day I have seen hundreds of Detroit's homeless and wondered if they are victims of human trafficking. Love Runs is raising funds to help fight human trafficking in Detroit and 100% of all funds raised will remain local. Love Runs provides human trafficking victims with medical and psychological support, education, and safe housing. So please, if you can, help me to help Love Runs prevent human trafficking in Metro Detroit.
