In order of “National Human Trafficking Awareness” month there will be a human trafficking event held at the Kashmere Garden Multipurpose Center. This event is to help bring awareness and education to the community about the ongoing development of human trafficking.
Not only is human trafficking is an enormous worldwide problem involving more than 28 million people.The demand for commercial sex fuels this criminal enterprise, and in Houston, the demand is high.
“Our community is home to over 300 illegitimate sexually oriented businesses, and hundreds of internet advertisements are posted for commercial sex in Houston each day. Human trafficking and sexual exploitation are hiding in plain sight, and the first step to combating the issue is for community members to become aware of the issue in their own backyard.”
