The Issue

According to the Polaris Project, human trafficking is “a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. As defined under U.S. federal law, victims of human trafficking include children involved in the sex trade, adults age 18 or over who are coerced or deceived into commercial sex acts, and anyone forced into different forms of “labor or services,” such as domestic workers held in a home, or farm-workers forced to labor against their will.”

Did you know?

  • There are approximately 27 million slaves world-wide.
  • Human trafficking is a $9 billion industry in the U.S. alone.
  • The average age of entry into the sex trade is 12 to 14 years old.
  • NC is ranked 8th on the FBI’s list of states most likely for trafficking violations.
Activate Good believes that getting educated about community issues is a crucial step towards learning how you can volunteer and make a difference to help solve them. We hope you can join us on December 8 to learn more.DISCLAIMER: This movie is rated R.
