Safeguarding Communities through Partnership

WORKING TOGETHER TO END HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND EXPLOITATION

Every afternoon across the globe, young people are being exploited and trafficked for the purposes of commercial sex. According to the Department of Justice, human trafficking is the second largest criminal enterprise in the world and is continuing to grow at an exponential rate. Traffickers are targeting potential victims from all genders, races, ethnicities, religions, and socio-economic classes.

They believe they are conversing with a friend, boyfriend, or girlfriend but they’re being conned. They are actually talking to a sex trafficker who is manipulating them so that they can be exploited for PROFIT.
