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).

What is the value of a life?

At Hope Against Trafficking, we believe all lives are valuable and everything possible should be done to assist survivors who have been abused since they were children to heal and grow.
