Over the course of the last few days the hashtag #SaveTheChildren has spread like wildfire across all platforms of social media. More and more people have begun to take interest after an anti-trafficking rally that was held in Hutchison County.
Save The Children rallies are part of a movement to help end the trafficking of minors, something that Family Support Services says often have gone unnoticed. What started out as a small group has now taken off as a movement spreading across the country.
The #SaveTheChildren groups are gathering to host rallies to show support and help educate people on human trafficking and how it targets children.
Human trafficking has been around for ages and has lived in the shadows in this country, now, it seems that we have finally reached a time that people are starting to pay attention and care about something that has grown into one of the largest issues our country and world are facing.
The most important thing that needs to come out of this newfound attention is education.
It is a crucial part of the movement that we help people understand the raw and painful truths that are behind human trafficking. Only when they are fully aware, can we come together to eradicate it.
The sad reality is that 1 in 9 children receive online sexual solicitation and 1 in 10 children are sexually abused.
For those looking at ways to stop trafficking both minors and adults, consider looking right in front of you.
Selah Freedom holds virtual prevention trainings and events such as Sex, Lies & Media Trainings, How to Talk About Body safety with Children (Training for Parents), and more. If you are interested in signing up for an event visit our trainings and events information page.
