Where are they? Outrage over perceived increase in missing black, Latina girls in D.C.
Black lawmakers are calling on the FBI to investigate whether there is an increase in cases of missing black children and teens in the nation's capital.

Unfortunately there isn’t an increase in missing girls of color (which means this is NORMAL!) And missing black girls are usually classified as runaways which means no Amber Alert! Anyone else seeing an issue here???

Religious Sisters Dress Up As Prostitutes To Rescue Trafficking Victims From Brothels
The low-key network of 1,100 sisters currently operates in 80 countries.

PSA if you got something like this in the mail it’s a scam. Do not call back for an interview. A simple google search will tell you they’ve been involved with human trafficking and preying on teens and young adults who don’t know any better. When you call they will tell you you’re “lucky you called so soon” because they’re on a “first come first serve basis” for “these” jobs, promising $15 or more an hour. Glad I found all this out before my interview in the morning.

Motivation Monday: Motivational Women

Gillian Anderson - her continued fight to end sex trafficking and human slavery across the world was the inspiration behind The Subject Woman Project and my desire to learn as much as I can to help in that endevour. It’s in our backyards, and there is so much that still needs to be done.

Hillary Clinton - She deserved better, but her legacy continues in us and our renewed desire to resist and fight back against the injustice that we see. We won’t stop fighting because we KNOW it’s worth it.

Women’s March Marchers - I was there. I marched. I will continue to march, and our voices will be heard.

What motivates you?

Unless you are a victim of abuse or faint of heart

People have to realize, it’s statistically impossible that there are no pedophile rinks in your government, and in big banks, and in international corporations. Not to mention how well connected to each other these institutions are. There are tens of millions of people around those circles, around the world, and you only need a sample of a few hundred to surely find someone who has raped multiple minors. There are more than a few hundred people who have hundreds of millions of dollars, and you can only imagine how much you could get away with if you had those kinds of resources and connections. The more powerful someone is, the easier -not harder, easier- it is for them to get away with it. Here’s the proof of all of that.


I also wanted to highlight a specific name from this video

22:17: “the flight logs also show that Bill Clinton went to Jeffrey Epstein’s island fucking frequently.”

“Billionaire hedge-fund mogul, Jeffrey Epstein, became a free man five years after he was first accused of sexually abusing underage girls.

… During Epstein’s terms of house arrest, he made several trips each month to his New York home and his private Caribbean island. In the early stage of his sentence for soliciting prostitution for a minor … he was allowed out to his office each day. Meanwhile Epstein had settled more than a dozen lawsuits brought by the underage girls who were recruited to ‘perform massages’ at his Palm Beach mansion. Seven victims reached a last-minute deal … days before the scheduled trial. Each received well over a million dollars, an amount that will hardly dent Epstein’s 2 billion net worth.

The Palm Beach Police Department identified 17 local girls who had contact with Epstein before the age of consent. The youngest was 14 and many were younger than 16, and that was just one of those things many homes around the world20:38he also owned property in New York, Santafe, Paris, London, and the Caribbean.

The subsequent investigation by the FBI, reaching as far back as 2001, identified roughly 40 victims, not counting Nada Marcinkova whom Epstein referred to as his ‘Yugoslavian sex slave’

There are some heavy allegations surrounding politicians and royalty who spend their time with a convicted pedophile [Jeffry Epstein].

…. Brought in on the billionaire’s private jets, nicknamed by locals as the ‘Lolita Express’, numerous girls were allegedly taken to his 78th acre little st. James hideout in the US Virgin Islands. It is claimed that they were made to take part in depraved orgies….

Court papers claim visit included prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders. The flight logs also show that Bill Clinton went to Jeffrey Epstein’s island frequently. The flight logs show that he went there 26 times in 3 years.

 The most powerful people in the world are doing this with impunity because nobody has the power to stop them, and when they are -like Epstein- finally brought trial, he simply pays off the victims and escapes the sentencing“

Dear Tumblr

How about you stop worrying about first world problems and issues such as makeup not having the right color for your skin tone? How about we worry about more important things like human trafficking, children being abused, racism on both ends of the spectrums, the many people and children forced to work under harmful conditions in third world countries?

Petition : Find the Missing Girls and Boys in DC

I created a petition through change.org because of the increase of disappearances and suspicion of human trafficking that’s going on in my hometown of Washington, D.C. A lot of Black and Hispanic girls and boys have gone missing over the past couple of weeks and the government, police and media are not addressing this crisis. Sign this petition and spread the word!

Raped, beaten, exploited: the 21st-century slavery propping up Sicilian farming
Thousands of female Romanian farm workers are suffering horrendous abuse
By Lorenzo Tondo

tw: rape, abuse, slavery

An Italian migrant rights organisation, the Proxyma Association, estimates that more than half of all Romanian women working in the greenhouses are forced into sexual relations with their employers. Almost all of them work in conditions of forced labour and severe exploitation. Police say they believe that up to 7,500 women, the majority of whom are Romanian, are living in slavery on farms across the region. […]

The huge rise in the number of Romanian women seeking abortions in Sicily is also alarming medical professionals and human rights groups. According to Proxyma, while Romanian women make up only 4% of the female population of Ragusa province, they account for 20% of registered abortions. […]

Those who did report their abuse to the authorities said they then often found themselves unable to find work elsewhere.

“Here’s a pretty unbelievable story: Laurie Holden is an actress who plays Andrea on “The Walking Dead,” but she isn’t just an actress. Holden also works as a human rights activist with a group called Operation Underground Railroad. It’s an organization run by an ex-CIA agent named Tim Ballard that works to take down unsavory human traffickers and the like. So, Holden and the group went down to Colombia to try to take down a group of men who were trafficking in underage prostitutes. Ballard, Holden and co. ingratiated themselves into this group and set up an elaborate party in an effort to catch these men in the act….” Adam Pliskin, Elite Daily 

“For months, the group put together a massive sting operation in cooperation with Colombian authorities. They each had an elaborate cover story. Ballard’s story was that he was the best man in a wedding back in the U.S. and was looking to hire several underage prostitutes for a big bachelor party in Cartagena. The cover was meant to lure the sex traffickers into a setup so that Ballard and his team could rescue the girls, many of whom were under 18. … In order for Colombian officials to prosecute the sex traffickers, they have to catch them exchanging money for the girls on tape. … Holden’s job was to “keep [the traffickers] occupied by the pool area while Ballard and the undercover officers worked to catch the traffickers on tape exchanging money.” Candace Smith and Aristides Pinedo-Burns, ABC News 

“When the traffickers agree on camera to to pimp out the underage girls and the money is exchanged, the cops move in to make the arrests.  During the ordeal Holden works with social workers to comfort the girls, who fear they’re the ones who will be in trouble and that they won’t be paid. Holden is clearly heartbroken when interviewed after the fact. But she should also be extremely proud of her work.” Ian Cervantes, Complex

NBC nixes ‘Mail Order Family’ sitcom featuring Filipina mail order bride after backlash

NBC announced on Friday night that it scrapped plans to develop Mail Order Family, a sitcom about a man who purchases a Filipina mail order bride. The network announced that the show had been greenlit only two days ago, Mic previously reported. The decision comes after a scathing internet response to the premise and creator Jackie Clarke, whose personal experience prompted the creation of the show.

Honestly I’m tired of rich white women feminism. There are so many issues we should be focusing on. Human trafficking, pro choice issues, trans rights, rights for women of color, lgbtqia+ rights, rights for homeless women, I can go on and on. We need intersectionality. Feminism is not feminism without intersectionality. Feminism is not feminism if we solely focus on “rich white woman” issues. And I’m not sorry saying this.

Human compassion is not a limited resource.

This stuck with me and stays with me when people use the “there are other/bigger” issues argument. Never forget that you can care and empathize across as much space as you need. You can fight against racism, homophobia, speciesism, human trafficking, sexism, environmental degradation, transphobia, ableism and every issue out there. Don’t be afraid to give fucks because they’re yours to give.
