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.
