Based in Illinois, the non-profit covers up tattoos like the ones shown above. Those bar codes (which can be scanned by smartphones like regular bar codes you find on retail items) are tattooed on to victims of human trafficking by their “owners” to facilitate easy identification and retrieval of their “property” in case they escape. The organization also covers up gang tattoos. In any case, it’s a chance for a new lease on life. Repin and spread the word, if you’re so inclined.
A child is not a pawn… but thousands and thousands of American kids are exploited in the sex trafficking industry every year. I’m teaming up with Covenant House to put a stop to the buying and selling of children – and so should you. www.covenanthouse.org
