What is human trafficking?
Often referred to as modern-day slavery, this crime is committed all over the world, and generates $9.5 billion annually in the U.S. alone. Victims, mostly women and young children, are often manipulated, threatened, and violently coerced into prostitution. Many times they are drugged and abused to hold them in captivity.
Who and What do we support?
