Teen helps fight human trafficking

Fifteen-year-old Anna Demian is not taking on your typical high school project. She will be a part of the Ignite the Road to Justice Tour, a campaign to bring awareness to human trafficking. The tour, hosted by Miss Canada 2011, Tara Teng, takes off on August 15 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and will reach 10 major cities across Canada.

Anna is the youngest member of the tour and wants to show that young people have power to effect change.

“It’s for those people who don’t have voices. And I have a voice and I believe it is my responsibility to use it,” Anna said, according to the bclocalnews.com.

The Ignite the Road to Justice starts at 7 p.m. PT on August 15 at Coastal Church, 1160 West Georgia Street in Vancouver. The tour will wrap up in Toronto on September 4.
