Stop Human Trafficking

Recognizing Victims of Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which people profit from the control and exploitation of others. Victims include children involved in the sex trade, adults over the age of 18 who are forced, coerced or deceived into commercial sex acts, and children and adults compelled into different forms of labor or services against their will and who often receive little to no compensation.

Human Trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world, and it is the world's second largest criminal enterprise after drugs.
