Submission + - Modern Human Slavery - Nerd Causes (state.gov)

Oxford_Comma_Lover writes: The 2011 Trafficking in Persons Report is out. We nerds remember freeing the slaves in the Copper Coronet, watching Sam Beckett fight slavery's vestiges in Quantum Leap, and Doctor Franklin's Underground Railroad, but sometimes do not know the twelve-year-olds at risk or actually enslaved in our own town. As well-educated, gifted, and capable people, should we learn and read about modern slavery and spend a little time fighting it, as fictional heroes did? Or was Sam only Don Quixote, tilting at windmills behind a somebody-else's-problem field?
