Operation Speak Up by Lauren Hanley

What is human trafficking?

Human Trafficking is a crime that forcefully exploits men, women and children. It is often referred to as "modern slavery". This has become a $150 billion per year industry.

Why is it such a big deal?

It is estimated that internationally every year between 20 - 40 million people are forced into human trafficking. 1 in 4 of these people are children. In 2018, in the US alone, over 50% of human trafficking was for sex involving only children. Reports indicate that a large number of child sex trafficking survivors in the US were at one time in the foster care system. 

Advocates report a growing trend of traffickers using online social media platforms to recruit and advertise targets of human trafficking.The average age a teen enters the sex trade in the US is 12 to 14 years old. Many victims are runaway girls who were sexually abused as children.
