Below are several books and links to organizations that fight human trafficking in many different ways. I’ve also included a link to another blog that has already created a comprehensive list of both fictional movies and documentaries on the subject of human trafficking. It is my hope that you will take time to educate yourself on this issue and will decide to join the fight in whatever unique way you choose. And above all, please tell someone else about this issue and help them understand that slavery is not something in our history books. It is alive, thriving in all its evil… but with each and every step we take against it, we are reclaiming the freedom that everyone deserves.

A fellow abolitionist has already compiled a great list of films along with summaries for each on his blog, dedicated to the issue of human trafficking. I would suggest you browse his site for these films, and begin with the documentaries to learn about the realities of human trafficking both here and abroad. He also has several books listed on his site, so you may want to check out that list as well. Thank you, Carl, for fighting for freedom!
