NY: Raising awareness to end human trafficking
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle – January 14, 2017
Many immigrants to this country fall victim to “agents” who keep them isolated, ignorant of their rights, and unable to leave due to threats, beatings and debt-bondage. And even if freed from their traffickers, victims still face the vulnerabilities they had before they were trafficked: mental and physical illnesses, stigma, isolation and often a criminal record that impairs future employment. Trafficking truly is modern-day slavery.
