Join us to fight human trafficking and make the world a better and safer place!

Human Trafficking is Slavery

It’s the illegal trade of human beings. It’s the recruitment, control, and use of people for their bodies and for their labor. Through force, fraud, and coercion, people everywhere are being bought and sold against their will–right now in the 21st century. 

This is the reality: slavery is violence. It’s physical, verbal, and sexual abuse, or forced labor. It’s forced prostitution. It’s barbaric working conditions.  And it is a serious crime.

The many faces of slavery today.
