What is Human Trafficking?
Human Trafficking is modern day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every state and every country is affected by human trafficking.
Sex Trafficking occurs when someone uses force, fraud, or coercion to cause a commercial sex act with an adult or causes a minor to commit a commercial sex act.
A commercial sex act includes prostitution, pornography, and sexual performance done in exchange for any items of value, such as money, drugs, shelter, food, or clothes.
Any person under the age of 18 involved in commercial sex is automatically human trafficking and does not require force, fraud, or coercion.
Persons who are trafficked are in bondage, although not normally in chains physically. The are controlled by fear and psychological manipulation.
