OUR CURRENT PROJECT/CAMPAIGN
TRAFFICKED: More Than Just A Story
Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act.
Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked in countries around the world, including the United States. It is estimated that human trafficking generates billions of dollars of profit per year, second only to drug trafficking as the most profitable form of transnational crime.
The average pimp has 5 girls, gross over $100k annually and high-end pimps make millions trafficking young men, women and children. Victims see an average of 30 “clients” per day and work 7 days a week.
The Truth About Genetically Modified Foods
What are Genetically Modified Foods?
Genetically Modified Foods or Genetically Engineered Foods contain ingredients that are foods produced from organisms that have had specific changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. These ingredients are called Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). GMOs are plants or animals that have had their genes altered with DNA from different species of living organisms, bacteria, or viruses by scientists in a lab. This is done to get the desired traits such as resistance to disease or tolerance of pesticides. These techniques have allowed for the introduction of new crop traits as well as a far greater control over a food’s genetic structure than previously afforded by methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding.
