"Social Secrets" debuting Summer 2022 deals with human trafficking with the characters investigating the crime in Canada and the United States utilizing the cooperation of numerous law enforcement agencies.
Covenant House Toronto is offering education material for yourself, students and teachers to increase awareness while offering assistance and guidance to those most vulnerable; teens and marginalized citizens.
"Sex trafficking can happen to any young person, regardless of age, culture, income, orientation, gender or neighbourhood.6 Traffickers find their young victims online, at schools, malls, parties, libraries and bus stops.
Studies have shown that although traffickers recruit from all areas and backgrounds, marginalized, lower-income young people are often more at risk.
Homeless youth are among the most vulnerable. Over 30 per cent8 of female youth who stay at Covenant House have been involved in some form of the sex industry, including sex for food. While only some of these youth are trafficking victims, this number shows desperation and a drive for survival. Traffickers search this out.
To learn more about sex trafficking, visit Traffick Stop, our online resource to educate and raise awareness of sex trafficking in our communities."
