In Mexico ECPAT is doing really amazing work against trafficking and have <br />been aware of threats to trafficking of girls, boys and women via internet <br />contact for several years now - and according to them it is on a steady rise. <br />They´ve shared that indeed the internet has really facilitated contact - via <br />chat and social networking sites for grooming. A representative came to a <br />roundtable discussion on feminism and technology this January hosted by <br />Laneta and Modemmujer as part of the Take Back the Tech! to end violence <br />against women project in Mexico. She shared how they are on Facebook, <br />checking out profiles that look particularly vulnerable to trafficking, and <br />friending these girls to alert them to get their information private, and to <br />cut off contact with others if it starts to feel uncomfortable. Am curious to <br />know if they have similar strategies in the US. One thing is certain - ECPAT <br />Mexico has some of the most creative and commmitted women working against <br />trafficking that I have ever met!
