Human trafficking is slavery. It’s the illegal trade of human beings; it is the recruitment, control, and use of people for their bodies and for their labor. Through force, fraud, and coercion, people are being bought and sold against their will.
This is the reality: slavery is violence. It is physical, verbal, emotional, and sexual abuse. It’s forced prostitution. It’s barbaric working conditions.
Trafficking currently robs 25 million people, including 5.5 million children, of their freedom globally.
Profits from trafficking exceed those of Apple, Samsung, Exxon, and Microsoft combined.
Trafficking is illegal in everywhere. Lack of
enforcement allows it to continue and grow in victims and profit.
Fewer than 1% of trafficking cases are identified, even fewer prosecuted, most are undetected.
