I am an educator for children pre-k through 8th grade. I am also an abolitionist against child slavery. As an educator, it is my job to educate and protect my students. When I first learned about child slavery in other countries (a.k.a. human trafficking), I was saddened and disturbed. I started helping with preventative efforts to fight human trafficking, particularly in Cambodia and Thailand where child sex slavery is prevalent. But later when I discovered it is happening in my own backyard, I sprang into action. I have joined a task force, working on abolishing slavery here in America. I continue to learn all that I can to spread the word and help others look for signs of child slavery. If you are a parent, grandparent, educator, coach, tutor, or work with children, it is important to learn about human trafficking where you are and join others like me to help fight it.
It is my goal with this blog to teach you what I have learned and to spread awareness. Then, I encourage you to take action where you are if you have a child caught in child slavery. You can also teach children in your homes, classrooms, or soccer fields what to look out for as a preventative measure. Everyone can help. Everyone can help end child slavery.
