On Monday, CNSNews posted an article that has raised hundreds of heckles about the United Nation’s (U.N.) global commission report on HIV/AIDS. Amongst its contents was a disturbing subchapter dedicated to decriminalizing consensual sex work, (a.k.a. prostitution). For such a recognized and revered organization, it’s baffling to wonder how the U.N. missed several implications on its legalize-and-regulate model. Here is a list of reasons why their approach is aloof.
One of our interns, Priscilla Ko, had the opportunity to interview our friend Johanna Talley of IJM. In case you missed part I, it’s definitely worth the read on how Johanna came to be so passionate about fighting human trafficking. Today, Priscilla provides part 2 of the interview and covers the landmark grant Google made to IJM.
It’s been a real privilege for me to get to know Johanna Talley of IJM. There’s something about joining in the same battle and fighting the same evil that brings people together. You can read Johanna’s official bio here, but I’ll tell you that her passion for ending human trafficking is absolutely contagious.
This week, our fab intern Priscilla Ko takes us back into the fight against human trafficking with a post about CNN (probably not what you expected?). No matter what your opinion of CNN is, reflect on the fact that such a huge media outlet has taken such a significant stand against trafficking. We are entering great, new territory, folks.
