If you or someone you know suspects someone might be a victim of trafficking, contact the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline at 1-888-373-7888
This week’s conversation tackles the horrific reality of human trafficking around the world. Jeff, Mona and Allen discuss the realities of forced labor, the underground sex industry, roles that race and patriarchy might play, and offer partial solutions to this global, systemic evil. After such a heavy topic, the co-hosts talk about the ways they care for their own emotional and mental health when confronting the heaviness of the world.
