Abolish Modern Slavery
But...slavery is a thing of the past, no?
Today, it is estimated that 27 million people live enslaved.
There are more slaves today than at any prior time in human history.
Trafficking in persons is SLAVERY, invovling victims who are forced, defrauded, or coerced into labor or sexual exploitation
The trafficking of humans it the 2nd MOST LUCRATIVE CRIME IN THE WORLD.
Approximately 80% of people trafficked are female. Of these, HALF ARE GIRLS (minors).
About 100,000 U.S. children are forcefully engaged in prostitution or pornography every year.
Astonishingly, in the first 48 hours of being on the street, 1 IN 3 CHILDREN ARE FORCED INTO PROSTITUTION.
Between 15,000 and 17,000 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year.
About half are forced to participate in commercial sexual exploitation.
2 CHILDREN ARE TRAFFICKED EVERY MINUTE.
