Hi, I'm new to this community! I'm a college student from New York. I currently live in lower Manhattan. I just typed up a post over at my dying community peoplerepublic
about slavery, based on an article I read. This inspired me to search other livejournal communities, which is how I found this one.
The article (http://www.foreignpolicy.com/story/cms.p
hp?story_id=4173) brought to light some new things for me, and made the important point that although many in the West are preoccupied with sex slavery and forced prostitution, for every 1 sex slave there are 15 slaves in other industries. I'm very concerned with all sorts of social issues plaguing our world today, including slavery in all of it's forms. I joined this community to hopefully become more aware of the problem and to find different ways that I can help in any way possible.
