human trafficking and slavery Human trafficking occurs when a person is tricked, sold, or forced into a coercive, highly exploitative “slave-like” situation against his/her will, with few options to escape. People may be trafficked or forced into any number of situations including agricultural work, construction, fishing, manufacturing, and mining. They may be enslaved for domestic work or sexual exploitation. For most victims of human trafficking, the outcome is slavery. Today, the UN estimates there are 20.9 million slaves globally... more slaves in the world than ever before. $32 billion in annual profits versus a global budget of $350 million to fight the problem Source: U.S. Trafficking in Persons Report 2012 Where were you? When I was enslaved... Of the 21 million slaves worldwide, 26% are children. Within private sector slavery, 22% is within the sex industry. If you were victimized, by traffickers, you might ask this question: If you are a teacher, integrate slavery into your lesson plans.
If you are a student, organize a school event to raise awareness.
If you are a consumer, learn about the products you buy, and shop accordingly.
