About The Episode
Human trafficking happens everywhere. Here in the United States, it is most prevalent in states like Texas, California, Florida, and New York. As Mitzi Perdue, author of How Can I Make A Difference? 52 Tips for Combating Human Trafficking, says, it happens in big cities “where the money is.” This problem has garnered the attention of leaders worldwide, even involving the United Nations as it’s a $150 billion industry. The United Nations estimates 40 million people around the world are enslaved and their goal is eliminate this problem by 2030. While that is an ambitious goal, Perdue wrote the book for the purpose of not only highlighting the gravity of the problem, but to let people know there is hope and that anyone can make a difference. She is a writer by trade, having published over two dozen books and multiple articles. For this book, she interviewed heads of anti-trafficking organizations and collected personal narratives from trafficking survivors. The book is a quick, easy read to capture the readers’ interest and fit shorter attention spans. There are 52 tips, one for each week of the year. Perdue says that we all have the ability to recognize the signs of human trafficking, she cautions people not to interfere directly as it’s a dangerous endeavor. She encourages everyone to dial 911 if there’s immediate danger or the Human Trafficking Hotline: 1-888-373-7888.
