Researched historical aspect of this slavery.
Searched many different websites for the final parts chosen to be hosted on the History Page.
There is a lot written about the history of slavery in the USA, but most are written from the perspective of the impending war over the matter of slavery of that time, and not from the modern perspective.
I found this section of the research very interesting and learned a lot about America.
Visited many website reporting on current aspects of the issue of Human Trafficking and completed the Home page, highlighting the fact that President Obama declared the month of January anti Human Trafficking month.

How can our community improve our perception of human trafficking(HT) when we continue to allow a community to believe HT only exist in the ghetto? Until the community as a whole begin to care and advocate for victims things will not change. You will not see any billboards to raise awareness about HT but when you drive through the ghetto that is only when you see the outcry to help victims. Why haven't there been new studies of the profile of the consumers who are demanding the services of commercial sex acts? Maybe then we can then track down those consumers and end the demand for commercial sex acts that will then in turn reduce the alarm rates of HT.

I agree that ending demand is the only way to end sex trafficking. Unfortunately, since prostitution laws are not consistently enforced (because prostitution is a "victimless" crime), sex trafficking victims are often not discovered. I think severe penalties for the PURCHASE of sex would help, but only if law enforcement would enforce that.
