IN PLAIN SIGHT Podcast to End Human Trafficking

If you’re not into reading copious amounts of articles on human trafficking, instead take a listen to this podcast!

What this podcast is about and their mission:

Over the last year and a half as we’ve been producing the IN PLAIN SIGHT resources, we’ve heard from countless leaders – both current and emerging – that there is a need for inspiring stories and actionable insights from people who are farther down the road on this journey.

That’s why we’re launching this podcast as a source of inspiration and information for those of you who are taking action in your own city.

Whether your focus is on prevention, demand, rescue, aftercare, or research, our hope is that each weekly interview with an experienced anti-trafficking leader will provide you with something you can use in your efforts. We’re less interested in “get to know you” interviews and more focused on a specific topic that will be helpful to a broad audience.


 

If you are following along for the 31 day challenge, this is number 28 on your list. The original is no longer active and available. This is my replacement action.

Take the challenge with me. Check back in every Thursday for more every-day actions you can take to make a difference against human trafficking.

Take the Challenge.

Make a difference.
