HUMAN TRAFFICKING PREVENTION EDUCATION TOOLKIT
You have to know what human trafficking is
before you can stop it.
Human Trafficking is any scenario where the use of force, fraud, or coercion compels another person to engage in labor or a commercial sex act.
Anyone can be trafficked.
Sex trafficking can happen online or offline, and by a stranger or by someone you trust. Anyone can be trafficked, regardless of their age, sexual orientation, or gender.
Trafficking happens everywhere, even at home by trusted family members who exploit vulnerability and manipulate people into situations they can't escape.
Red flags for labor trafficking include requiring excessively long or unusual hours, low pay or withheld wages, exploitative or abusive conditions, and illegal activities.

They are forced into activities against their will, such as sex acts
