Heidi,

You mentioned camel jockeys in this post. I found this article from the BBC about robotic jockeys to be particularly interesting:

Thank you for your coverage of this important but seldom talked about injustice.

Brian,

Great article. Isn't it encouraging to see that public awareness makes a difference?!

It appears that after the camel jockey issue came to light and received international attention, alternatives were sought to the enslavement of young boys in this capacity.

Thanks for bringing that to light--Heidi

We found your article very informing and touching. We watched the LifeTime original "Human Trafficking," and we thought Human Trafficking was wrong. So we decided to learn more. We actually didn't know anything about Human Trafficking until we saw the movie and read your article. We just wanted to say that this is a magnificent article, and you really helped us understand more about Human Trafficking.

-Ashley, Jasmine and Nuvia
