Most of human trafficking is in the form of sex, but after sex, the most common form of human trafficking is forced labor. Human trafficking exists all around the world even in the United States.

New York, California, and Florida are where most of human trafficking occur in the United States. Belgium, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Thailand, Turkey, and the U.S. are ranked very high as destination countries of trafficked victims.

UNICEF estimates that 300,000 children younger than 18 are currently trafficked to serve in armed conflicts worldwide. Human traffickers are trafficking pregnant women for the new born babies. One the babies are born, they are sold on the black, where the profits is divided between the traffickers, doctors, lawyers, border officials, and others. The mother is usually paid less than what is promised her for in return for giving up her child. A mother might receive as little as a few hundred dollars for her new born child.

 Human trafficking has been dated back over 400 years ago, and it still exists. Approximately 75-80% of human trafficking is for sex. There are an estimated 27 million adults and 13 million children all around the world that have been victims of human trafficking. We need to do something about human trafficking and end it. 30, 000 victims of sex   trafficking die each year from abuse, disease, torture, and neglect. 80% of those sold into sexual slavery are under 24, and some are as young as six years old.

Family members often sell children and other family members into slavery; the younger the victim, the more money the trafficker receives. The signs of human trafficking are incontrovertible.Trafficking victims don’t normally receive help because they think that they or their families will be hurt by their traffickers, or that they will be deported. We need to take a stand for those women and children who can’t, and save them from modern day slavery.

Sex traffickers use a variety of ways to “condition” their victims by subjecting them to starvation, rape, physical abuse, beating, confinement, threats of violence toward the victim and their families, forced drug use, and shame. Victims from human trafficking suffer devastating physical and psychological harm. Grab a hand of a victim, and don’t let go.
