Human Trafficking

There are a lot of misconceptions about human trafficking that can be detrimental to survivors. We're going to talk about what human trafficking is, bust some myths, and talk about how you can help someone who is being trafficked.

What is human trafficking?

Human trafficking involves labor or sex acts obtained through force, fraud, or coercion. Large-scale trafficking operations have been sensationalized in the media and in entertainment, but they are not the norm. Human traffickers can be the neighbor next door, the 'nice folks' who own the hotel down the street, or friends or family members.

Labor and sex trafficking can happen in any community, to any age group, to any ethnicity, race, gender, or nationality. Traffickers may use violence, threats, forced substance use, manipulation, false promises, or even the pretense of a romantic relationship to lure people in. Parents, significant others, friends may use similar tacts as abusers to traffic victims.
