With your help, we can pass much-needed state laws in Hawaii defining human-trafficking as a felony offense while recognizing victims. Hawaii is currently one of six states lacking human-trafficking state laws.

You can't even bring a pet into Hawaii without 40 permits, but they won't take a strong stand against sex trafifcking? Protect your women and children from perverts and crime, sheesh!

Its awful Hawaii is lacking the proper laws, hopefully it will be more strictly regulated and the sex traffickers are brought to justice.

It is awful to see the photo of the poor souls hiding their faces because they were humans being trafficked. The ones who set up the trafficking should hide their faces! I met a human trafficker once. It was a person who wasn't bad, it was a person who was empty. In fact I would say it wasn't a person at all. This individual was a true psychopath, out for profit and caring nothing for anyone else. A true psychopath and a very dangerous one. All of society needs to be protected from such individuals.

I wish I could sign but I can't.

What in the world is wrong with Hawaii and the other states, lacking in human trafficing state laws? Where are all of the pro-life people, who love to worry about the unborn? This is a perfect place for them to put their energy into saving children, before and after, being sold into slavery. This is a no-brainer.

Trafficking is a global issue tragedy of trafficking in South Asia is thousand of young girls and boys are sold into modern-day slavery. Watch Sold it provides a compelling look into this dark, inhuman, and exploitative world and shows how each one of us can help to prevent modern-day slavery.
