Airports equal big business for human traffickers: What one group is doing to stop it

The latest effort to stamp out human trafficking may be coming to an airport near you. A21, the non-profit brainchild of Christian evangelist Christine Caine, is working to raise public awareness of the global epidemic by targeting the areas frequented by criminals.

“Human trafficking often involves travel – both internationally and domestically – and utilizes all forms of travel from cars to taxis to rideshare services to buses to airports,” A21 Global Prevention and Education Director Kristen Morse told CBN News.

So that’s exactly where the A21 team is headed.

In a joint effort with the US Department of Transportation, advertisements from their “Can You See Me?” campaign are prominently displayed on signage in some of the world’s biggest airports and transportation terminals.

To date, this campaign has been featured in JFK, Newark, LaGuardia, Dulles, Dallas, and Chicago O’Hare airports, as well as all the Amtrak stations throughout the nation.

“It is also used in hotels, shopping malls, and other hospitality and tourism venues,” stated Morse.
