“In the Booth with Ruth” – How one activist is raising awareness of Human-trafficking.

Did you know this month is Human Trafficking Awareness Month ?

Human Trafficking Awareness Month is a month dedicated to raising awareness of the global, mass, illegal movement, abuse and exploitation of people (an estimated 27 million globally).   This is a crime that is often invisible but destroys and devastates many, many lives every year.

There are, however, individuals, organisations, policy makers, campaigners, authors and activists who work tirelessly, day in and day out, to raise awareness of human-trafficking.   People like the author and campaigner Ruth Jacobs, who, throughout the month, has conducted interviews with a wide range of campaigners, survivors and exited prostituted women (because no clear line can be drawn between human-trafficking and prostitution) in an attempt to share information and find solutions and effective strategies to end human-trafficking.  For good.

Ruth’s thought provoking, moving and inspiring interviews can be accessed here.  Why not take a little time to read through an interview, or few, and explore the many ways you too can help shed light on this terrible crime?
