Stop human trafficking event ‘The UnBall’ goes virtual

Human trafficking is a growing crime in Florida, with nearly 900 cases reported in the state this year alone.

It’s happening in plain sight and yet, most of us never see it.

Men, women, and children are being illegally trafficked right here in our neighborhoods.

Savannah was a victim of human trafficking. She said, “I started being sexually abused by a neighbor around the age of five and my parents knew that it was happening … My dad had a stroke that left him disabled when I was nine and after that my mom got more involved in drugs … Then there was a time when I was 11 that her drug dealer offered a $10 piece of crack for me instead of for her.”

From a dirty secret to an all-out fight to end human trafficking.

This survivor tells her very personal story to raise awareness to help save others.

So how can you help?

This Thursday night at 7 p.m., Catholic Charities is hosting a virtual event and you’re invited!
