What is the best way to spread awareness of human trafficking in suburban areas?
At 27 million people and 32 billion dollars a year, the modern slave industry is at an all time high. It affects every country and community in the world in some way or form and any person could become a victim. There is not set "type" of group or person that becomes a part of this industry. Anyone can be a victim. Age, gender, socioeconomic status, language, country of origin, none of that matters.
And yet it seems that very few communities are aware of this problem. It does affect every community in some way and so few people seem to consider it more than a problem that happens in poor urban areas or third world countries.
What would be a good way to spread awareness about the issues of human trafficking to a community? What would be a good way to inspire awareness and involvement in the efforts to eradicate this scourge? How would one go about doing this?
The answers I'd find most helpful are creative ideas, examples of past communities working together to help in a global problem, examples of what you would do in this situation or possibly what you have done in this situation, if you had ever before been faced with this or something similar.
