Dear Francis,
Do the numbers 80,000 or 2,950,000 mean anything to you?
In my weekly blog, I talk about how shocked I have been by “did you know”
statistics. Here's what I mean...

Did you know that 80% of the 800,000 people trafficked across borders every
year are women and girls?
How about that when you google “mail order brides,” you turn up with 2,950
000 websites?
Today, slavery has a new name – human trafficking.
Like slavery, human trafficking is not the problem of "other" communities or
countries, but rather it is a problem that festers beneath the surface of
our own backyards.
Don't miss a Lifetime Television movie event
Human Trafficking
Oct. 24-25, 9 PM ET/PT
To host a gathering in your home to view the movie on October 24, click here

So what can we do? First and foremost we can all get educated. Start by
inviting your friends and colleagues to join you in watching the Lifetime
mini-series Human Trafficking movie beginning October 24, 2005.

Help us share their stories and raise awareness. It’s the first step in
ridding the world of this crime.

Sign up to host a viewing then download the step-by-step tool kit online.

Human trafficking, like slavery, seems only as real as the history pages
upon which it is written.
You can help determine how the next chapter in is written – become educated
and take action against human trafficking today!
