#sextrafficking | Opinion: Human trafficking — another plague that deserves a spotlight | #tinder | #pof | #match | romancescams | #scams



As the past eight months have so strikingly reminded, there is no shortage of plagues in this world.

The latest reminder is a slew of social media blasts filled with individuals raising awareness about human trafficking.

The trafficking of humans is an unquestionably despicable act and affront to humanity. No child, woman or man should ever be a victim or suffer from such a crime.

Unfortunately, many do. The nature of the operation makes exact numbers nearly impossible to track, but the anti-trafficking organization Polaris reported working on more than 10,000 cases with more than 23,000 survivors in 2018.

The annual Trafficking of Persons Report from the Department of State is nearly 600 pages and details known information and actions being taken to fight trafficking in countries around the world.

Human trafficking is not a small problem. It deserves a spotlight.

Yet, the swell in awareness has caused a rift between some activists on social media. The timing of the campaign directly following the chorus of voices calling out racial inequality led to speculation about an attempt to stymie that momentum.

Criticism has been aimed at human trafficking activists for staying silent on racial inequality, while human trafficking activists argue that their cause has hardly received the attention it deserves.

Both groups seem to be forgetting the intersectional nature of their work.

Fighting racism helps to end human trafficking and vice versa. There are aspects in systems of oppression that overlap. No cause is completely separate or one dimensional.
