A Petition to Prevent Sex Trafficking. Sign it.

The Homie, Maria Tchijov over at Change.org hit me up the other day about a new petition that puts pressure on the corporate owners of the Comfort Inn to put a stop to child prostitution in their hotels. The petition was initiated by Change.org blogger Amanda Kloer, following the sex trafficking and subsequent tragic death of 5-year-old Shaniya Davis in Sanford, right here in my home state of North Carolina. Blacakdemics.org salutes Amanda for starting this initiative – and if you believe in the cause, please sign the petition by clicking this link. While child sex trafficking should be particularly significant to the Black community because it disproportionally affects children of color in America, this is human rights issue. Choice hotels needs to step up to the plate and do their part to put an end to this heinous industry. So let’s do our part.

    I am thankful that we are thinking and acting on such matters as these. The crimes against children are growing more intense.
    Thanks Amanda…American open your eyes. God bless all and Happy New Year. Prayfully a new year will bring different, but more positive results.
