Human trafficking is an epidemic throughout the world, and it is often happening in places you would not expect. While it is not something we hear about often on the news, the trafficking industry earns more than $150 billion a year worldwide.
Traffickers look for victims who are in some way vulnerable and take advantage of their weaknesses or poor situations to force them into sexual or general labor. The Department of Homeland Security calls it a “hidden crime” because of how difficult it is to uncover and track, due to the fringe nature of the criminals and victims. (Do Something)
One of the biggest myths about human trafficking is that the victims will seek help when given an opportunity. Victims are often afraid to come forward, even when they might have a chance to. This is due to a variety of factors: they may fear violence and retribution against themselves or their family, might feel shame for what they have been forced into, or may not be in possession of or have control of their identification documents.” (Department of Homeland Security)
