Advocacy Day for Human Trafficking Prevention - How Laser Tattoo Removal Makes an Impact

    
advocacy day for human trafficking preventionJanuary is Human Trafficking Prevention Month in Texas, and it marks the beginning of Texas' 86th Legislative Session. January 22, 2019 is Advocacy Day for Human Trafficking, and dozens of groups are heading to the Texas State Capital in Austin to support the rights of those involved in human trafficking and to advocate for solutions.

Human trafficking is defined as modern-day slavery that involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial exploitation.  This billion-dollar criminal industry preys on millions of vulnerable individuals worldwide, and often times the most easily targeted groups are homeless youth.  Fortunately, there are several non-profit organizations that have championed the prevention of human trafficking and the rehabilitation of its survivors.  

It's a common practice for traffickers to mark their victims through tattoos, brands, etc. to convey ownership and eliminate free will. Laser tattoo removal is being used around the United States by non-profits and other organizations as a way to remove painful reminders of involvement in human trafficking. Removing these painful reminders can help start the mental healing process after surviving human trafficking.  

Astanza Laser has proudly partnered with several non-profits throughout the United States to offer qualified 501 (C)(3) organizations preferential pricing on the equipment needed to get started, including the Astanza Duality tattoo removal laser, a Cryo 6 cooling device for reducing treatment discomfort, and annual maintenance on their device.
