The Center for Violence Prevention proudly announces the opening of Mississippi’s Human Trafficking Shelter for adults in the Capitol City. While many people want to discuss slavery of the past, I hope and pray that we can all come together to tackle this modern day slavery. It most definitely does not discriminate against age, race or gender. Human trafficking and/or human sex trafficking is a very, serious issue. It impacts children as young as 10-12 years old and all the way up to adult age. I encourage everyone to research this issue and become educated on what’s happening in our country and state. Read the article below and see why this shelter is such a blessing for Mississippi.
