The Fight Against Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery

In the 2008 film Taken, a French thriller film co-written and produced by Luc Besson, starring Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen, Neeson portrays a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operative who is trying to rescue his daughter after she is kidnapped by human traffickers while travelling abroad. The movie scored high with audiences for its entertainment value, although few bothered to examine whether it was based on fact. This happens every day.

While being entertained by a film that’s taken place abroad that and is believed to be mere fiction, it is believed that between 100,000 and 300,000 children are victims of human trafficking in the United States alone. One in three children is lured into commercial sexual exploitation in their first 48 hours on the streets.

Awareness is the first step to change.
