Transcript of Human Trafficking - Class Presentation (April 2013)
: DAILY UNJUSTLY GLOBALLY Human Trafficking "There are 27 million people in slavery today. They are forced to work without pay, under threat of violence, and they’re unable to walk away. You can find them in brothels, factories, mines, farm fields, restaurants, construction sites and private homes"

FACTORS Did you know that every individual has the right to:
- "life, liberty and security of person" (Article 3 - The Universal Declaration of Human Rights), as well as
