Stop the Traffik’s Youth Forum

At Stop the Traffik’s Youth Forum in Vienna yesterday:

We saw young people addressing governments and united nations delegates with passion and energy to inspire them.

We had school students who learned about trafficking and made a film

We had a young woman who decided at the age of 12 she wanted to work with helping women get out of the sex industry.

We heard from an Indian teenager who is a trainee investigator, who at 17 years of age, spends his days on train platforms looking to help children who are vulnerable to being trafficked.

We saw so many people here not just talking about the role of government in stopping trafficking, but the power that ‘normal’ people have—it increases our belief that when people act, things change.
