"Victims forced into sex slavery are often subdued with drugs and subjected to extreme violence. Victims trafficked for sexual exploitation face physical and emotional damage from violent sexual activity, forced substance abuse, exposure to sexually transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS, food deprivation and psychological torture. Some victims suffer permanent damage to their reproductive organs. Many victims die as a result of being trafficked."
"Amazing Grace" the movie can inspire you to action. A companion effort by the movie's producers, AmazingChange.com can tell you how. Please visit AmazingChange.com to see how you can help. I also recommend checking out a companion book for the film, “The Amazing Grace of Freedom.” It provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film. This lavishly illustrated volume help viewers to better understand the horrors of the slave trade and heroes who fought against it. And FAAST will give you information (faastinternational.org/youcando) on how you can become "a 21st century abolitionist."
