Ricky Martin Wants Attention On Human Trafficking

February 16th, 2010 // Leave a Comment

Ricky Martin exchanged his leather duds for a more serious tone at the University of Puerto Rico Law School, where
he called for the country to do more to stop the severe problem of human trafficking. Martin presented a study conducted by the Ricky Martin Foundation, which promotes children’s rights, Monday on his home island the AP reports.

Sex tourism and human trafficking are
prevalent in Puerto Rico the study concluded, with women and children as the victims.

“This is happening on our island,” said Martin. “We cannot turn our back on the victims.”

The Latin pop singer has been involved with a number of other causes recently, volunteering for Hope for Haiti as well as attending Bulgari’s Save the Children auction. Perhaps his young sons act as inspiration and grounding for the once more “loco” pop star.
