The Institute on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault of University of Texas – Austin recently published a groundbreaking study on human trafficking in Texas. Careful research and investigation reveal over 300,000 victims are being trafficked in Texas. This includes 79,000 children and youth and 234,000 adults. Sometimes, people remark that it’s so awful children and youth are being trafficked but the adults should know better. It is important to remember that both children and adults are precious and deserve to live lives of dignity and worth. And many of the adults caught in the plight of human trafficking entered into the life at a younger age. Find a link to the study here.
