What Is Human Trafficking?

Updated Apr 29, 2020

According to the Department of Homeland Security, human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. There are many types of human trafficking that occur right here in the United States, and in this course, we'll go over what those are. We'll discuss victims - where they're likely to originate from, why they're targeted, and how they are lured and enslaved. We'll also talk about what's being done to reduce human trafficking, how to recognize it, and what to do if you believe you're interacting with a victim.
