Brook Bello used her story of survival as a way to reach out to other victims of human trafficking to help them heal and restore their own lives.
Experts estimate that there are nearly 30 million victims of human trafficking around the world – today. This evil institution is not a relic of another century; slavery is alive and well in every country of the world and in all 50 U.S. states. Indeed, there are more victims of slavery today than anytime in human history. Victims of modern slavery come from every walk of life. They are men, women, boys, and girls. They are exploited for free labor and commercial sex, either through force, fraud, or coercion. Together, we can be the generation that ends slavery, once and for all.
