Default 21st century Anti-Slavery Campaigns

1. No relevant pre-existing thread found.

2. One case of historical precedence that this is relevant to the Collective's interest.

3. Anyone currently involved in this fight care to chime in?

Quote:
There are over 20 million people sold every year to the highest bidder. Two million or more are children sold into sex slavery.

A group of highly skilled and dedicated veterans, former police officers, and homeland security agents have joined the fight against child human trafficking. They work with local authorities all over the world to rescue children caught in this vicious cycle.

The group, dubbed The Abolitionists, have been taking the fight to human traffickers for the last two years in Columbia, Honduras, Mexico, India, Hati and the USA. With one child being sold into sex slavery every 30 seconds, we need them more than ever.

Since 2013, this team of former U.S. soldiers, Navy SEALs, and government agents has been filming its on-the-ground efforts to end sex trafficking.

Several years ago, Tim Ballard, who had served as a U.S. government agent for a dozen years, went rogue — but in a good way. While working as a special agent for the Department of Homeland Security, Ballard, a devout Mormon, infiltrated child-trafficking rings by posing as a pedophile. But he grew frustrated by the red tape. So, in 2013, Ballard left the department and started Operation Underground Railroad, or OUR, a private organization that conducts so-called “extraction operations” to free child sex slaves and bring their captors to justice.
