Beyond Borders Coalition Making A Difference

The Canadian government will receive a petition next week signed by more than 570,000 people who are calling for action to stop sex-trafficking of children and youths.

A coalition consisting of groups such as Beyond Borders, The Somaly Mam Foundation, and The Body Shop are presenting Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety with a petition this Tuesday in Ottawa.

The groups claims that human-trafficking is the fastest growing industry of the criminal world predominantly for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Hundreds of women and children are trafficked into Canada each year and as many as 2,000 per year are trafficked out of Canada into the U.S.

I hope you will consider getting involved in any organization that is a part of ECPAT  (End Child Prostitution and Trafficking) International. Please visit my Resources page to see the Beyond Borders link and other organizations that I admire.
