The past few weeks’ events will make your head spin. Global Law Enforcement and Intelligence organizations discovered the largest child pornography ring in history with over ONE MILLION users that subscribed to a Dark Net site and received frequent user points for paying their subscription with Bitcoin. The US Congressional Intelligence Committee is investigating TikTok, owned by the Chinese company ByteDance, for possible international security violations for using artificial intelligence to record and share user data. The People’s Republic of China introduced their cryptocurrency that will be 300,000 times faster than Libra being introduced by Facebook, which is being investigated by the U.S. Congressional Finance Committee. Mass audience live streaming apps like Tik Tok and Likee are expanding rapidly with many teenagers having more than 100,000 followers, and where predators can easily reach our kids from any where and privately text them. It is INDEED a fast changing world.

We discuss the impact of gangs and cartels on human exploitation. We also look at trends in global human trafficking. Our goal is to build a global interactive community of individuals empowered to eradicate human exploitation.
