Last Friday the Tomball Lions Club welcomed members of Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.). O.U.R. was founded in 2013 and works with law enforcement around the world to rescue victims of human trafficking, especially children. 
O.U.R. has gathered experts including former CIA, past and current law enforcement, and other highly skilled operatives with the goal of ending human trafficking. In addition to rescue efforts, O.U.R. works to see that the perpetrators are prosecuted and that the governments, organizations, and companies that allow these predators to operate are held accountable. 

Child trafficking is a $32 billion dollar industry. 
The United States is the number one customer of trafficked children.
Social media is one of the main sources for traffickers to find victims.
