Rhonelle and Ashley join me today to shine a light on human trafficking, in honor of Human Trafficking Awareness Day on February 22, 2020. Rhonelle shares the three areas covered under the human trafficking term and describes the targets and tactics that sex traffickers use on young women. Ashley shares the current situation of sex trafficking in Canada, the differences between human trafficking and human smuggling, and explains what coercive debt is. She also highlights the behavioral cues to watch for and how you can get involved in tackling this issue. We also discuss how you can help end human trafficking and where to find support and resources.
