Eastside Women of Purpose partners with quality organizations who work on the ground with people most affected by human trafficking issues. Pictures for a Purpose raises money to support specific projects for the year focused on education and prevention with children, intervention, holistic training, and sustainable living after coming out of the bars and brothels.
What Is Trafficking?
A Global Epidemic
There are more than 27 million people enslaved today, more than at any other time in history. In fact, human trafficking is the third largest type of crime in the world - only after drug and weapon trafficking.
Unlike drugs, vulnerable boys, girls, men and women are a reusable commodity. However, unlike a pill or powder, these human beings have souls, families, and emotions. Human sex trafficking is modern day slavery.
Human trafficking is a crime that can be found in literally every country in our globe, including the United States. There are between 100,000 - 300,000 trafficking victims in the US alone.
