Did you know that the majority of human trafficking in Canada now takes place online? Traffickers use social media platforms to both lure their victims and exploit them with 55% of young people meeting their traffickers online or via text message. ⠀ ⠀ But not all social media platforms are bad, continuing to share posts like ours, not only raises awareness, but can find its way to victims of human trafficking who are seeking help.⠀ ⠀ So keep sharing those posts, because you never know who may be looking for help.
