Make a Report

Human trafficking is a broad term that includes both labor and sex trafficking, domestically and internationally.

Sex trafficking, occurs in a variety of ways that often include not only violence and isolation, but fraud, coercion and intimidation. Traffickers maintain control through careful orchestration of these tactics, more so than brute force and strict confinement alone.
