What is human trafficking? 

Human Trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of people through force, fraud or deception, with the aim of exploiting them for profit. Men, women and children of all ages and from all backgrounds can become victims of this crime, which occurs in every region of the world. 

Assessing the full scope of human trafficking is difficult because so cases so often go undetected, something the United Nations refers to as “the hidden figure of crime."

How many children go missing each year?

Each year, an estimated 8 million children are reported missing around the world and 800,000 of those children are reported missing in America. 

27% of trafficking victims are children.

Who are the traffickers? 

Perpetrators of human trafficking span all racial, ethnic, and gender demographics and are as diverse as survivors. Traffickers profit from this practice by controlling their victims and exploiting them for labor and/or sex.
