While the fight against human trafficking is happening in the United States, there's also an effort to end sex slavery overseas.

Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker has made fighting international human trafficking a priority of his after an Atlanta paster asked him, "If not you than who?"

Corker said that question sparked his interest in making a change to help millions human trafficking survivors around the world.

Corker said there are anywhere from 27 to 40 million people in slavery around the world, with 26 percent of them in sex slavery.

"They never again will see freedom. There's no way for them to get out of that cycle," Corker said.

One way Corker has worked to raise awareness of the issue is through the "It Has To Stop" social media campaign to end human trafficking.

Recently, the U.S. Department of State announced $25 million award for the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery. The United Kingdom also gave a $25 million donation to the fund.

"Once you see it and experienced what victims go through and how they are lured into this, and once you know you can be the vessel, if you will, for which change can occur, I don't know how you cannot be involved," Corker said.

Corker is not the only person from Tennessee fighting international trafficking. Jeremy Floyd with 10,000 Windows, is also part of the outreach.

"We need to do something about this right now," Floyd said.

Every window with their organization is a story. They want to help 10,000 people. They've already helped 180 people find sustainable jobs, and they are currently helping 483 people.

"They can't stay in these shelters forever. If you ask them they don't even want to be in these shelters. If you ask survivors what they want they want employment," Floyd said.

10,000 Windows is looking to raise $100,000 for their efforts in Southeast Asia. For more information, click here.
