Here are some statistics on human trafficking.
Human trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others.
Sex traffickers use violence, threats, lies, debt bondage, and other forms of coercion to force women, men and children to engage in commercial sex acts against their will. Under federal law, any minor under the age of 18 years induced into commercial sex is a victim of sex trafficking.
Victims are manipulated, deceived and violated by their traffickers, trapping them in horrific situations every day in our communities. All trafficking victims share one essential experience - the loss of freedom.
