Human trafficking is the barbaric practice of profiting in people, a form of slavery we assumed had been assigned to the ash heap of history. Sadly, today nearly 25 million people around the world are victims of trafficking.
Make no mistake, the trafficking industry has become a global enterprise that rakes in billions of dollars a year. The Federal Bureau of Investigation declared human trafficking the third-largest criminal activity in the world. The FBI notes that ending this horrific practice will require a robust response from community leaders, all levels of law enforcement and government agencies.
