uOttawa Students For Life: In Ottawa on Saturday, May 5, 2012

This post was written for uOttawa Students For Life by uOttawa Students For Life. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

Mark your calendars for a day-long conference called The Justice Summit, or better yet register online now. Human trafficking is an affront to human dignity and all too often hidden.

It is estimated that 27 million people are enslaved around the world at any given moment.
80% of the victims of sex trafficking are women, 50% of these are children.
Human trafficking has risen to become the second most profitable crime globally after the drug trade.
Young women have been and continue to be trafficked in Ottawa and forced into sex slavery.
The Justice Summit will feature presentations by international human rights advocates, human trafficking survivors, and activists.
