Human trafficking is modern slavery. It is a worldwide problem. And it’s a local problem.

Women and girls are most often the victims: 71 percent, according to the International Labor Organization. Victims are kidnapped, bought and sold for sex and forced labor.

As White House adviser Ivanka Trump told the United Nations, “Human trafficking, forced labor and modern slavery splinters families, distorts global markets, undermines the rule of law [and] strengthens transnational organized criminal networks.”

Besides its annual Trafficking in Persons Report, the U.S. Department of State recognizes heroes of the fight against trafficking.
