"Human Trafficking: Its Everybody’s Business” with Brenda Wells

"Human Trafficking: Its Everybody’s Business" with Brenda Wells. Founder and Director of i-5 Freedom Network, --A Corporate Response to End Human Trafficking. Americans are the best at finding where the dollars are and we do so especially well with an entrepreneurial spirit. It is this condition that has allowed human trafficking, both labor and sexual exploitation, to take hold in the US. And when we talk about human trafficking now, we are talking about US girls and boys, women and men, being exploited and trafficked by US men and women. California is consistently the state with the highest reported cases of human trafficking; OC is a top sex tourism destination in the country. Gangs are switching their commodities from drugs to humans. Employment agencies are luring the unsuspecting into jobs with no pay and abusive conditions. How can your business help put an end their business?
