    • Human Trafficking: A Growing Domestic Concern Presented by: Troy Erb Becca Lagola Edwin Richiez
    • What is Human Trafficking?
      • Human trafficking is a modern day practice of slavery.
      • Human trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, and transportation of people solely for the purpose of exploitation.
      • Every year traffickers generate billions of dollars in profits at the expense of victimizing millions of people around the world, including the United States.
      • Victims most often are forced into coerced labor or used for sexual exploitation.
    • According to US Statistics on Human Trafficking
      • 14,500 - 17,500 foreign nationals are trafficked into the United States every year.
      • 244,000 American children and youth estimated to be at risk of child sexual exploitation, including commercial sexual exploitation, as reported in year 2000.

    • Why Should We Take a Stand?

      • Secretary Condolezza Rice in her statement below displays our government’s stance and resolve regarding human trafficking in the US and abroad.
      • “ All nations that are resolute in the fight to end
      • human trafficking have a partner in the United
      • States. Together we will continue to affirm that
      • no human life can be devalued or discounted.
      • Together we will stop at nothing to end the
      • debasement of our fellow men and women.
      • And together we will bring forth a world of
      • fuller hope, a world where people enjoy the full
      • blessings of their God-given liberty.”
      • — Secretary Condoleezza Rice
