Globally, 4.8 million persons are forced into sexual exploitation, and the US is one of the largest consumers of victims of human trafficking.
Suncoast Credit Union, in partnership with the United States Institute of Human Trafficking, shares an awareness initiative that offers industry-specific human trafficking content designed to enlighten and engage professionals, advocates, and community partners.
To combat this horrific crime, we must collectively become enlightened to the crisis. We must allow ourselves to become enraged that children as young as infants are being sold in our communities. We must then become enraged and take action for those that cannot take action for themselves.
“You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.”
