Human Trafficking Affects Millions

It is estimated that there are 40 million survivors of human trafficking around the world.  The crisis is so bad, it is considered a modern form of slavery.

A person may be a survivor of human trafficking if they have been deceived about a work opportunity, are unable to leave that work situation, and are being exploited economically.
