Human Trafficking Awareness. Things to Do:
1.Talk to children about strangers and make sure they memorize important addresses and phone numbers.
Russ Wallace talks about the SLAVE TRADE and why he includes this important subject in his book. "We should all be upset that such a "trade," better called an abomnation, ever existed and still exist. The more of us who are educated abot this crime, the harder it will be for the criminals and evil doers to operate freely, and the tougher it will be for them to get off with a mere judical slap on the wrist when they are caught."
