Fighting against human trafficking can seem like fighting against the darkness. No matter how hard you try, there’s no stopping something so big and so powerful, and every time you feel like you’ve achieved a small victory, a problem pops up somewhere else. It’s the ultimate game of whack-a-mole, but the moles have been replaced by human lives, and the game is actually a global crisis.By some estimates, 100,000 individuals are trafficked in the U.S. each year, most of them women and many of them children. Month after month, we read stomach-churning reports of sex trafficking from across the U.S. There is a role each of us can play in fighting trafficking by simply understanding what to look out for, but a broader knowledge needs to occur as well to better prevent trafficking, intervene when it does occur, and help survivors rebuild.That’s why the Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™ teaming up with these organizations and is announcing the “Fast Ride”. The Fast Ride is a collaboration between four organizations to raise funds and awareness to combat human trafficking. Before and after the ride come hear about what all is taking place around the country to combat trafficking. Hear from survivors that have been in the trade and escaped. Come ride with the members of these organizations that are doing something about trafficking and find out how you can help.
