Sex Trafficking

-Mission Statement

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. Traffickers use force, fraud, or coercion to lure their victims and force them into labor, domestic servitude, or the commercial sex trade.

According to the U.S. State Department, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, of which 80% are female and 50% are children.

The FBI estimates that over 100,000 children and young women are trafficked in America today. They range from nine to 19-years-old. The average age is eleven. 80% of human trafficking is for sex and 20% is for labor exploitation

Wisconsin has documented cases of Human Trafficking in all 72 counties. Milwaukee is considered a hub of sex-trafficking for the Midwest. Pimps have been known to lure victims away from Mayfair Mall. Education is the key to prevention. Protect your family by being informed.
