SUMMARY OF THE SHOW
On today's show, Adrian talks with actress Laurie Holden about her efforts to end child slavery. Later in the show, Bruce Gale brings us an interview with one of our earlier Peace Fund Kid Heroes, Joshua Williams.
All children have the right to be protected from violence, exploitation and abuse. Yet, millions of children worldwide live in slavery.
Human trafficking is one of the largest issues facing humanity today. Human trafficking is modern day slavery and it occurs when one person uses manipulation, threats and/or violence to control another person in order to take advantage of them for economic gain. In disasters, conflicts and other humanitarian emergencies, children can become separated from their families. Left without protection, they are easy prey for traffickers to exploit either by force or with false promises.
