Human trafficking is a form of modern day slavery. Victims of human trafficking are subjected to commercial sex or forced labor. They are young children, teenagers, men and women. It was once thought that human trafficking occurred in other countries, but it is right in our own back yard – right here in the United States. There is now both State and Federal legislation to help combat human trafficking. The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 made human trafficking a crime.
