For Ontario Residents Please Sign Petition Below
Covenant House Toronto has started a petition on change.org to show Premier Wynne that citizens of Ontario will not stand for modern day slavery! Covenant House Toronto states:
"An increasing number of girls and young women who come to us have been victims of sex trafficking. As you know, homeless youth are extremely vulnerable, but unsuspecting girls still living with their families are also being lured from malls, school yards or online by traffickers posing as potential boyfriends. Girls, as young as 13, and on average 17, are being sold for sex by predators who control them through violence, drugs and intimidation."
Please take the time to sign this petition and help abolish modern day slavery. You can make a difference!
Defend Dignity acts as a catalyst for individuals and churches to end sexual exploitation in Canada.
