Ending Human Slavery in Our Lifetimes

I’d like to believe that there is a science to ending human slavery in our lifetimes. If not, then I’d like to begin such a process. Certainly the power of the internet could be harnessed to fight against such barbarity.

The Sex Slave Industry:

The sex slave industry is one of the problems that contributes to human slavery (for some important links regarding this problem, see Stella Rotaru http://reverbiage.com/find/stella-rotaru http://criticaldemocracy.wordpress.com/2008/05/13/stella-rotaru-sex-slaves/ and http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&suggon=0&as_q=&as_epq=Stella+Rotaru&as_oq=&as_eq=&num=10&lr=&as_filetype=&ft=i&as_sitesearch=&as_qdr=all&as_rights=&as_occt=any&cr=&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&safe=off). By calling attention to this problem, which exists everywhere, yes everywhere, you may be able to put press on lawmakers and others to raise the awareness of such problems and begin processes to end it.

Human Trafficking:

Sites that can serve as beginning points for understanding the aspects of human trafficking are: http://www.apcss.org/core/Library/Bibliography/humantraf.htm http://www.outreachworld.org/resource.asp?curriculumid=1141 and http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&suggon=0&as_q=Human+trafficking&as_epq=human+slavery&as_oq=&as_eq=&num=10&lr=&as_filetype=&ft=i&as_sitesearch=&as_qdr=all&as_rights=&as_occt=any&cr=&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&safe=off

How to Stop Human Trafficking:

Although there are several sites suggesting ways to combat human trafficking, we need a higher level of response from everyone. Some sites that suggest ways to stop human trafficking are: http://www.stophumantraffic.com/ http://www.amnestyusa.org/violence-against-women/end-human-trafficking/page.do?id=1108428&n1=3&n2=39&n3=738 and http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&suggon=0&as_q=&as_epq=how+to+stop+human+slavery&as_oq=&as_eq=&num=10&lr=&as_filetype=&ft=i&as_sitesearch=&as_qdr=all&as_rights=&as_occt=any&cr=&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&safe=off . If you send anyone resources to stop human slavery or trafficking be sure to follow up and see whether or not your contribution is doing what you thought it was designed to do. Following up is very important whenever you give to charities or other causes, because unfortunately, there are always those who try to profit from others misfortunes.

Hopefully this can be the start of a resource for people committed to ending human slavery.
