PEOPLE ARE TRAPPED IN MONDERN-DAY SLAVERY AROUND THE WORLD TODAY.
THAT’S MORE THAN EVER BEFORE IN HUMAN HISTORY.
WHAT IS MODERN-DAY SLAVERY?
Sex trafficking is commercial sexual exploitation. It is when someone is forced, manipulated into, or threatened into performing any sexual act in exchange for money, safety, or to evade punishment.
Forced labor is work done involuntarily under the threat of a penalty such as violence or harm to the victim’s family and often unable to leave.
WHEN A person is forced to provide services with the obligation to live on/in a property without the possibility of changing those circumstances.
EARLY-CHILDHOOD FORCED MARRIAGE
IN CERTAIN PARTS OF THE WORLD, GIRLS ARE SOLD INTO MARRIAGE TO OLDER MEN AGAINST THEIR WILL. ONCE MARRIED, A GIRL WILL NO LONGER ATTEND SCHOOL. INSTEAD, HER DAYS WILL BE SPENT WORKING FOR THE OLDER WIVES AND HER HUSBAND. A LIFE OF EXTREME SEXUAL AND PHYSICAL ABUSE IS THE STARK REALITY SHE WILL FACE ON A DAILY BASIS.
Slavery is the 2nd largest global organized crime, generating $150.2 billion per year.
That’s more than the combined revenues of Amazon,
Google, and Ebay every year.
The average SEX TRAFFICKING victim may be forced
to have sex up to 20-48 times a day.
Every 30 seconds, another person becomes a slave.
