HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS MODERN DAY SLAVERY
Victims of human trafficking are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion, for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. Human trafficking victims are children, teenagers, men, women, U.S. citizens and immigrants. It happens in homes, at businesses, in schools, in malls, etc. No person or place is exempt from falling victim.
As the fourth largest city in the country, Houston’s diversity makes it easy for trafficking victims to blend in with the general population. United Against Human Trafficking is ending human trafficking through awareness, education, and outreach.
The Greater Houston Community Foundation awarded UAHT with funds to conduct outreach initiatives in the Greater Houston Area. These funds directly support the identification, education, assessment, and referral to services for victims of human trafficking impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
