See something, say something is a phrase often associated with airport security - and, with good reason. The phrase, however, is also apropos to another dangerous threat to men, women and children globally. Human trafficking, also known as modern slavery, affects people of all ages and all walks of life around the globe. Yet most of us are woefully unaware of the scope and impact of these criminal practices and what we can do individually and within the meetings.

See something, say something is a phrase often associated with airport security - and, with good reason. The phrase, however, is also apropos to another dangerous threat to men, women and children globally. Human trafficking, also known as modern slavery, affects people of all ages and all walks of life around the globe. Yet most of us are woefully unaware of the scope and impact of these criminal practices and what we can do individually and within the meetings.
