What Is Human Trafficking?
Human trafficking is the use of force, fraud or coercion to obtain labor or a commercial sex act.
Trafficking is a multi-billion-dollar industry and the demand isn’t going away. The roots of prostitution and trafficking are often found in severe childhood abuse, loss and/or neglect. It is these traumatic childhood experiences that push individuals (predominately children) towards homelessness, addiction, prostitution, trafficking and incarceration. (Thistle Farms, 2020).
