Aaron Cohen – A Hero Living in Courage

Human Trafficking is the world’s fastest growing and most deadly enterprise.  Why?  It is more profitable than drugs, guns and jewels. Aaron Cohen is on a global quest to free victims of human trafficking and the slave trade.  His new book Slave Hunter tells his remarkable story in detail.  Few people have the courage to walk this road.  I have unspeakable admiration for Aaron and the work he is doing around the globe.  Going from living the life of a rock star, years of drug addiction and party life to spiritual awakening was the beginning of this long  journey.  Aaron Cohen has walked this journey with his longtime friend and business partner Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), as well as many other amazing and courageous people.

There may be as many as 27 million people enslaved today with around 800,000 new victims trafficked across international borders each year. Around 17,000 of these are brought annually into the U.S.  Aaron Cohen has dedicated his life and his new book Slave Hunter to the victims of human trafficking and modern day slavery.  Aaron is one person who is out there proving that each one of us can make a difference when we follow our heart.
