By now, many people have heard of human trafficking and slavery, but I always like to start any conversation about this issue with this fact: there are an estimated 50 million trafficked and enslaved people around the world.
This number is shocking, but even more shocking is that this is a rise of over 10 million people since 2017. The rise in numbers may be for good reasons, like there is more sophistication and efforts in identification, and bad reasons, like more people than ever, are being exploited.
