​EVERYWHERE.....

HUMAN TRAFFICKING is one of the largest criminal enterprises in the world involving the force, fraud and coercion of human beings as a commodity for profit. The unfortunate truth is that a person can be sold, traded and exploited on multiple levels over and over and over again.  Making the trafficking of persons a lucrative business with less risk than arms and drug dealing, but an even more dangerous enterprise for victims and our communities.

The trafficking of persons is not a new conversation, a new problem or a new crime. It involves the victimization and enslavement of children, women and men.  Any person can become a victim, and any person can be a perpetrator. Unfortunately, the trafficking of children is not just a global problem, but an American problem which has been largely misunderstood, ignored, accepted and silenced in far too many cases. Although organizations, entities and individuals want to provide services and support to victims of human trafficking, the seriousness, complexity and danger of human trafficking cannot be underplayed. In order to provide real support, you must have the capacity, be experienced and qualified. You must provide or have access to immediate long-term medical and mental health trauma informed care. It is also extremely important for support and services to be culturally and linguistically appropriate in order sustain and transition a trafficked person from trauma to victim and victim to survivor. Facilities which claim to rescue, restore and provide services to human trafficking victim, must and should be vetted and verified in order to ensure that victims are not re-victimized albeit intentionally or unintentionally. 

SEX TRAFFICKING:  the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act in which the commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, coercion and for which the person induced to perform such acts has not attained 18 years of age and;


DOMESTIC MINOR SEX TRAFFICKING: the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision or obtaining of a person under the age of 18 by which force, fraud, coercion has taken place. All of these need not be present for prosecution. Children can be victims of prostitution, pornography and/or erotic entertainment.

LABOR TRAFFICKING:  ​the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision or obtaining of a person for the purpose of labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, coercion for the purposes of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage or slavery.

ORGAN TRAFFICKING:  the illegal trade involving inner organs (liver, kidneys etc.) There is a worldwide shortage of organs available for transportation, yet commercial trade in human organs is illegal in all countries except Iran.
