RUNNING INTO THE DARK

 

 

Most of us feel uncomfortable in the dark. Perhaps that's why society is so apathetic to human suffering. Founder Yewande Austin's TED Talk, "Running Into the Dark", challenges the world to confront the darkest issues that plague our humanity, starting with global sex trafficking - the 3rd highest grossing industry in the world.
