#1 – “There are a number of cases that fall into the criminal realm of human trafficking including bonded or forced labor, sex trafficking, child labor, and trafficking in children. According to the United Nations, there are an estimated 2.5 million victims of modern-day slavery trafficked from 127 countries and exploited in 137 countries. It has been reported that the number of victims may be more like 27 million. These numbers make human trafficking the fastest-growing criminal industry and the second largest criminal activity in the world.”

#2 – “80% are women and girls, most of whom are trafficked into the sex industry. Although there were 3,160 recorded convictions for human trafficking in 2006, there were thousands of other instances not reported. In fact, according to the United Nations, only one of every 800 people involved in trafficking was convicted in 2006.”
