More than 90 percent of sex trafficking in Canada happens within our country borders. Tens of thousands of women and children are victims annually – half of which are aboriginal. CHRV is partnering with the UNODC’s Blue Heart Campaign to raise awareness of sex trafficking in Toronto and the GTA. The campaign has clear, strategic objectives aimed at ending the sexual trafficking of persons through direct action in emergencies and more general education and awareness raising activities such as:
- Community outreach initiatives;
- National awareness raising activities;
- The provision of educational seminars to elected officials, students and members of the hotel industry;
- Collaboration with various other organizations across the province;
-The provision of victim support, such as old cell phones so victims can contact 911, counselling, donations, educational aid, activities aimed at raising self-esteem and assistance in securing employment and shelter.
