Sex Trafficking Awareness(6)

These dramatized scenarios depict indicators of sex trafficking — a crime committed when a trafficker uses force, fraud, or coercion to compel another person to perform commercial sex acts. Human trafficking victims are often invisible because we do not recognize indicators of human trafficking. Identifying signs of human trafficking and reporting a tip may save a life.
