Sex and Labor Trafficking

Sex and labor trafficking systems are a form of modern day slavery. We must recognize that trafficking victims are not responsible for the criminal activity in which they have been forced to engage and provide survivor-centered and trauma-informed services for victims.

Solutions:
– Require local, state, and federal governments to regularly report data on human trafficking crimes.
– Strengthen the child welfare system’s response to sex trafficking.
– Require states to adopt “Safe Harbor” legislation prohibiting minors under the age of 18 from being prosecuted for prostitution
– Support National Trafficking Hotline.
