Human Trafficking Information

What is Human Trafficking?

Human Trafficking is commonly associated with sex trafficking or labor trafficking. Many believe that human trafficking only happens in foreign countries. Here’s the truth…

Sex trafficking and labor trafficking are happening in our community. EVERY DAY.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security defines human trafficking as “a form of modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud or coercion to exploit human beings for some type of labor or commercial sex purpose”

Sex trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, obtaining, patronizing, or soliciting of a person for the purposes of a commercial sex act, in which the commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age.

Labor trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purposes of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.
