Lisa Fox: Raising awareness of human trafficking can save lives
“Never has a parent wished they would have been less protective of their missing child.” Those are the words of my colleague, Bill Hickman, CEO of CSI Corporate Security and Investigations . Bill often works with families whose children have gone missing in human trafficking schemes. With January being named Human Trafficking Awareness Month, Bill’s words are now more timely than ever.
Too often, the dangers of human trafficking go unnoticed. However, this is changing because of several high-profile cases, including the child sex trafficking convictions of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell and the new Justice Department investigation that found more than 100 farm workers in Georgia were trapped in a modern-day slavery ring.
