What is Human Trafficking?

Human Trafficking is a violation of human rights in which victims are exploited for either labor or sexual acts for profit.

Sex Trafficking is when an individual uses force, fraud, or coercion to recruit, harbor, transport, provision, obtain, patronize, or solicit someone else for a commercial sex act.
