Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. Human trafficking can occur within a country or trans-nationally. Human trafficking is a crime against the person because of the violation of the victim’s rights of movement through coercion and because of their commercial exploitation. Human trafficking is the trade in people, especially women and children, and does not necessarily involve the movement of the person from one place to another.
The greater the marginalization, the higher the likelihood of exploitation. LTBTQIA+ youth, youth with disabilities, homeless teens, immigrants with no legal protection/rights, children of color, and those suffering from poverty are vulnerable for being taken advantage of by those who seek to profit on the pain, suffering, and victimization of the most vulnerable among us.
In this training, students will learn about:
- History of slavery and the various forms of human trafficking
- How someone becomes a victim of human trafficking
- How to identify potential victims of trafficking
They will also be empowered to challenge the exploitation of young children and adolescents in their communities, country, and around the world.
