Uber, Lyft, taxi drivers to get sex trafficking awareness training

The Seattle City Council approved legislation that  "...will lead to a requirement that for-hire drivers, including those with Uber and Lyft, receive sex trafficking awareness training as part of their county licensing process. A training program that will teach drivers not only to spot potential sex trafficking victims and survivors but also how to report such instances and provide victims with information about support services.

Support Freedom13 for FREE

Would you like a way to support Freedom13 and help stop domestic minor sex trafficking, and it cost you zero? If you shop at Amazon, you can take a few extra steps one time and help Freedom13. 

1.  Sign in to your regular Amazon account and click Accounts and Lists (on the right side of your screen), then look at Lists and go down the List to you see AmazonSmile Charity Lists and click.

2. In the search box type Freedom 13. Be sure and add a space between Freedom and 13.  When you see Freedom 13, just click and you’re done!

3. When you want to shop with Amazon, type That’s it, all done! You’ll receive the same products and the same prices as the regular Amazon. The only difference is Freedom13 will receive 0.5% of qualified purchases.

Thank you for helping us. We would appreciate your sharing this with your friends.

Worried About Alexa?

If you are concerned about your kids using Alexa in your home you should read the article on this link. She has actual experience using it with her four kids and her husband helped develop Alexa. She suggests:
  • Turn on explicit filters for music services
  • Consider blocking drop-ins from outside your home
  • Turn off Alexa on any Kindle Fire tablets to prevent searching skills
  • Consider turning off voice profiles
Let me add, if you have a friend named Alexis you might forgo the "Alexa, play Here Comes Santa Claus," jokes.
