Description

Modern slavery is happening all around you...?nd you can be part of the solution. Human trafficking is not just something that happens in other countries. Nor is it something that just happens to "other people," such as runaways or the disenfranchised. Even kids in your own neighborhood can fall victim. But they don't have to. Through true stories and expertise from her many years of boots-on-the-ground experience, anti-trafficking expert Nita Belles teaches you everything you need to know about human trafficking in the United States, helping you identify risk factors, take practical steps to keep your loved ones and neighbors safe from predators, and recognize trafficking around you, so that you can help fight it.

Professional reviews

"The author's message on human trafficking is grave, so Nicol Zanzarella treats it accordingly in her narration. However, the organization of the book itself challenges her effectiveness. Repetition may be an effort to reinforce details, but it also has the potential to desensitize some listeners to the horror contained in the narratives. Also, while Zanzarella infuses those narratives with humanity and compassion, their emotional impact may be further lost each time Belles interjects long sections of commentary. The issue of human trafficking is certainly one that needs exposure; Belles is knowledgeable in this arena, and Zanzarella delivers her message with appropriate respect and tone. Those who find the audiobook's organization effective will be well informed and prepared to contribute to the fight against this abomination. J.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
