Modern-Day Epidemic of SlaveryEvery 30 seconds, Human Trafficking claims a new victim. Children of all ages and backgrounds, including some of the most affluent, are being hijacked into a living Hell of physical, sexual and emotional exploitation, and torture…all around us. Poverty and lack of basic necessities place so many in the Detroit area at risk for trafficking as well. Add to that a legion of children from broken homes, or those who are abused and neglected, and Michigan’s proximity to strategic borders and transportation routes, and it all adds up to a modern-day epidemic of slavery.
