If you read my blog on the web and not in a newsreader then you may have noticed a new graphic in the sidebar. Yes, i’m an official blogger for The Exodus Road, but what does that even mean? It simply means that there are 27 million men, women, and children trapped in slavery around the world and i don’t think enough people know that it exists. So i’m just trying to do my part to make sure you know that there are more slaves in the world today that at any other time in history.
The Exodus Road specifically targets the selling of underage girls and boys in brothels and bars in Asia. Disgusting, i know. Thinking about someone profiting off of the rape of a 12 year old girl probably makes you want to vomit. It makes me want to put it to an end. And The Exodus Road exists to put this evil to an end. They set slaves free and put the perpetrators in jail. All of this is done through close relationships and partnerships with local law enforcement in the areas where they work and it’s done through teams who come from all over the world to be on the ground to gather evidence to prosecute people who sell rape for money.
Go to their website and learn more. Now that you know about it, it’s time to end it.
