  I use my family's legacy of working historically
       on the Underground Railroad using African textile
       languages as maps and infomation to fight Modern
       Human Trafficking.
               
       People of all races & faiths worked togeter to get
       enslaved people to freedom. We must pass laws, 
       provide safe havens & resources to help rebuild lives.

 It is sad to think Slavery still exist and in my former town of 
Atlanta, GA!

I have devoted this page to list on-line information,
 awareness exposure, resources, training programs and solutions to 
the issues and links to thoes also fighting human trafficking.

We must each do all we can!  ---- T. R. Kemp

on human trafficking &
migrant smuggling

 
Complete Article below
United Nations On Drugs
& Crime Report including USA


Human trafficking is the acquisition of people
by improper means such as force, fraud or deception,
with the aim of exploiting them.

*******
Smuggling migrants involves the
procurement for financial or other
material benefit of illegal entry of a person
into a State of which that
person is not a national or resident.

Virtually every country in the world
is affected by these crimes.

 The challenge for all countries, rich and poor,
is to target the criminals 
who exploit desperate 
people and to protect and assist
victims of trafficking and smuggled
migrants, many of whom endure
unimaginable hardships in their bid for a better life.

Modern slavery – be it bonded labor,

involuntary servitude, or
sexual slavery – is a crime and cannot be

tolerated in any culture, community, or country …

[It] is an affront to our values and our
commitment to human rights.”

 "Dear John" letteFormer Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklinr

                 Former Atlanta GA Mayor Shirley Franklin tried to stop Human Trafficking in her city.

Former Atlanta
Mayor Shirley Franklin 

launched the "Dear John" program in 2006 to purposefully attack 
the problem of child prostitution in the city of Atlanta. 

Dear John” is a public education 
campaign to end the commercial sexual exploitation of children, 
with Mayor Shirley Franklin, 
the Juvenile Justice Fund 
and a wide-range of supporters. 


The campaign seeks to educate and activate audiences to help 
stem the problem, which also results in children withdrawing from 
schools and their families, entering 
into poverty and becoming more susceptible to health risks. 

To read more about the program visit the City of Atlanta On-line.

Legislation that impacted Slavery

• Fugitive Slave Act 1850
• Emancipation Proclamation

It is important that we remember
the 13th Amendment
to the U.S. Constitution:


Abolition of Slavery (1865) "Passed by
Congress on January 31, 1865 and
ratified on December 6, 1865, the 13th
amendment abolished slavery in the United States.


The 13th amendment, which formally
abolished slavery in the US, passed
the Senate on April 8, 1864, and the
House on January 31, 1865.

On February 1, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln
approved the Joint Resolution of Congress
submitting the proposed amendment to the state legislatures.

The necessary number of states ratified
it by December 6, 1865.

The 13th amendment to the
United States Constitution provides that
"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,
except as a punishment for crime
whereof the party shall have been duly
convicted, shall exist within the United States,
or any place subject to their jurisdiction."

In 1863, President Lincoln had issued the
Emancipation Proclamation declaring
“all persons held as slaves within any
State, or designated part of a
State, the people whereof shall then
be in rebellion against the
United States, shall be then, thence
forward and forever free.”

Nonetheless, the Emancipation Proclamation
did not end slavery in the nation.


Abraham Lincoln recognized that the
Emancipation Proclamation would
have to be followed by a constitutional
amendment in order to guarantee
the abolishment of slavery.


The 13th amendment was passed at
the end of the Civil War (1861-1865)
before the Southern states had been
restored to the Union and
should have easily passed the Congress.
