We think it can never happen to us, to our kids, in our city... but the truth is that it we see it happening every single day, and we don't even realize it.
Danielle Thompson wanted to let shed light on what human trafficking really looks like, so she took pictures of signs that are hanging up in our city right now and explained how sex traffickers use them to entice the young and vulnerable.
How do you spot one of these ads? They talk of big money and big dreams, but little else. Notice how none of these signs have a company name, address, or even a website listed? That's a big clue that something is off. That phone number is easily disconnected or changed, and can be virtually untraceable, if someone catches on.
I can't tell you how many times I've driven by one of these signs without even batting an eye. From now on, I will make sure I share with others to stay away!
