 What is Human Trafficking?

Also known as Modern-Day Slavery!

Sex trafficking is "the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision,or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act, in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, coercion, or in which the person forced to perform such an act is under the age of 18 years" (The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services).    

                              It is in our town
   

                                                   The U.S. Department of State estimates 800,000 people—mostly women and children—are trafficked across international borders annually. After drug dealing, human trafficking is the second-largest criminal industry in the world today. It is estimated 17,500 to 20,000 foreign individuals are being trafficked yearly into the U.S


 

American Children Are At Risk!
 

 

 An additional 300,000 American children are at risk for trafficking into the sex industry. UNICEF estimates 1.2 million Children are exploited yearly around the world. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children says more than 58,000 children under age 18 are kidnapped yearly by non-family out of the 800,000 missing children a year. The National Runaway Switchboard estimates 2 million runaways a year in America. Plus hundreds of children are endangered "runaways" or missing from Foster Care Homes.   


What needs to be done?

 “When dealing with an issue of this importance and urgency, there is much to be done. The U.S. is asking governments to immediately take action to step up their anti-trafficking efforts.

  1. There is a critical need for increased rescues of trafficking victims and prosecutions of traffickers.
  2. People freed from slavery must be treated as victims of crime, not criminals.
  3. The demand for modern-day slaves must be stopped. This is not a victimless or harmless crime, and the public should be informed of the risks involved with it.”    -Bureau of Public Affairs
