What is Human Trafficking?

 

 

The U.S. Department of State defines human trafficking, also referred to as trafficking in persons, as all criminal conduct connected to forced labor and sex trafficking and the conduct involved in reducing or holding someone in compelled service. 

 

Any time a person is recruited, transported, transferred, harbored or received via threat, coercion, abduction, fraud, deception or abuse of power, and is then made to participate in prostitution, sexual exploitation, forced labor or involuntary servitude, they are considered a trafficking victim. Human trafficking is especially prevalent in poor communities. Because of their lack of opportunity, traffickers will prey upon these areas.
