Trafficking of individuals, specifically women and children, has become one of the most profitable sources of income especially for transnational criminal groups, making it the third largest source of income only after weapons and drug trafficking. (ESCAP, 2005) Victims are trafficked for forced labor such as factory, agricultural, mining work and/or sexual exploitation, and forced prostitution for sex trafficking or sex tourism. It is clear that human trafficking has grown, and continues to grown, exponentially. How we combat this egregious crime and help the victims who have been rescued is transforming daily as this issue begins getting more media attention and outcry from the public. We can all help individually by being aware that human trafficking and slavery does exist not only internationally, but right here in our own backyards in the United States.
