About this blog

Mayor Annise Parker recently appointed a committee to study human trafficking in Houston. As reported in 2010 by NPR, the U. S. Justice Department reports that Houston has become known for years as a major hub of human trafficking. It has been estimated that 25% of the modern slave trade takes place in Houston. I think this is a good opportunity to share information about this issue as people are learning more about it due to the mayor’s decision. Check back often to read the latest developments about human trafficking in the Houston area and the world.

    I look forward to reading your posts because this is not an easy subject to cover, specially being a woman and knowing that today they’re the most enslaved human beings around the globe. I really like the start and I hope you can bring this theme as a subject of interest to Houston.

    Thank you!
