WHAT IS MODERN-DAY SLAVERY?

SEX TRAFFICKING

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

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.

DOMESTIC SERVITUDE

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.
