What is Human Trafficking?

The United Nations defines human trafficking as:

“…the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.”

Human trafficking forces people into lives of sexual servitude and forced labor. It is a global problem, with more than 12 million victims of human trafficking around the world at this moment. Human trafficking was identified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as the fastest growing and second largest criminal industry in the world.

In the past three years, enforcement agencies working in California have identified more than 1,000 victims of human trafficking and arrested nearly 2,000 individuals responsible for forcing victims to live and work like slaves. Globally, law enforcement agencies identify an average of 35,000 victims of human trafficking each year.

Despite public perception to the contrary, the victims of human trafficking aren’t always “shipped in” from other countries. 72% of human trafficking victims in California are American citizens; however, of the victims traffi­cked from other countries, the U.S. Department of State estimates that approximately 80 percent are women and girls. Half are under the age of 18.
