Human Trafficking and Slavery in America

It's often easier to point the accusing finger of wrongdoing at other people and other nations, but Kevin Bales and Ron Soodalter have collecting damning evidence that slaves are hidden all around us in this country, in America! Their book, The Slave Next Door: Human Trafficking and Slavery in America Today, is a must read for all citizens, not just those who are counselors, experts, law enforcement officers, and rescue and support groups. We should also all heed its call for action to stop this horrific crime that can involve the dishwasher in a neighborhood restaurant, the man sweeping the floor of a local department store, and maids in the house next door.
