While sexual exploitation of youth has been an ongoing issue in Canada and our world for generations, there has been growing concern and need for better understanding of the issue in recent years. There is therefore a need for resources that speak specifically to the issue in our own country.
For years, we have been utilizing resources produced in the United States, and while they have been helpful in raising awareness here in Canada, it is always preferable to have resources that are most relatable to viewers. Providing resources that mention American cities and states have the risk of subconsciously suggesting that the issue of human trafficking and sexual exploitation does not happen in our country, in our own communities.
Check out this excellent resource from our close friend Jennifer Lucking of Restorations Second Stage Housing, in partnership with Defend Dignity.
