It’s not an easy topic to discuss, but human trafficking is a major problem affecting the world today. Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery—a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 20.9 million people around the world. And no matter where you live, chances are it’s happening nearby. Texas is among the most susceptible states in the US, with approximately 300,000 victims.
How You Can Help
In an effort to help stop this terrible violation of human rights, Abbeville Dentistry would like to ask your support for OneVoiceHome – an organization that provides housing, support and care for victims of human trafficking. Our teams have committed to raising $20,000 for OneVoiceHome and to participate in their fundraising event, Running2Rescue. Last year’s event hosted 1,500 runners and raised over $121,000!
