On Saturday, I was discussing human trafficking with a friend, and like many conversations about human trafficking we concluded with this question "what are the solutions to human trafficking?"
I do not know the correct answer and I'm not sure anyone does. However, I do believe that in order to combat human trafficking, there must be Awareness, Education, Coordination, and Collaboration.
Awareness opens the door for conversation. Education can taught to everyone - all ages, genders, and cultures. Coordination is needed to bring everyone together, share knowledge on the subject, and learn about what is taking place in different communities to combat human trafficking. Collaboration must include individuals, activists, teachers, parents, children, law enforcement, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations.
Human trafficking is not bias; everyone should be aware of this issue!
