Taken, The Horrors of Human Trafficking!
In this episode, Dr. Donna Sabella, PhD, CRNP, PMHNP-BC joined the For the People Fam in the studio to discuss the many different issues surrounding Human Trafficking.

According to the Polaris Project, a trafficker is defined as someone who recruits, transports, harbors, obtains and exploits victims, often using force, threats, lies or other physical and psychological methods of control. The average age of a trafficking victim is 12 years old, and at any given moment there are an estimated 27 million victims of human trafficking. Despite the abhorrent nature of Human Trafficking, the demand for the services forced on the victims generates revenue for the traffickers at an annual rate that rivals the GNP of many medium sized economies!
