2019 Spring Break
The San Diego/Tijuana border is the busiest border crossing in the world. Despite significant increases in security over the years, the border remains a place where human beings—especially women and children—are bought, sold, and forced into the sex industry in both Mexico and the United States. This week we will learn from, serve with, and love on survivors of sex trafficking.
Here are some facts:
•According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), human trafficking is a $32 billion dollar-a-year global industry;
•Approximately 27 million people are slaves in the world today.
•Each year, between 16,000 to 20,000 children become victims of human trafficking in Mexico.
•15 years old is the average age of entry into child commercial sexual exploitation (CSEC).
