    • Human Trafficking
      • Throughout the entire human trafficking process there are 4 people involved:
      • The recruiter gains the victim’s trust and then sells them for labor or to a pimp. At times this person is a boyfriend, a neighbor, or even a family member.
      • The trafficker is the one who controls the victims. Making the victim fearful through abuse, threats, and lies the trafficker gains power over there victim.
      • The victim could be anyone.
      • The consumer funds the human trafficking industry by purchasing goods and services. Often they are unaware that someone is suffering.
    • Human Trafficking is not noticed
      • Some reasons why human trafficking is not noticed:
        • Victims do not identify themselves due to fear and shame.
        • Traffickers keep their victims secluded from the outside world.
        • Traffickers force their victims to be happy and tell them what to say.
        • Many people do not know about human trafficking and do not report it even though it is happening in their community.
    • How to stop Human Trafficking
      • Human Trafficking is an industry that relies on money. If people stopped purchasing services related to Human Trafficking then the human trafficking industry would shrink until it did not exist.
      • If consumers knew more about human trafficking, they would think twice about what they were spending their money on.

    • Opinion
      • Through doing this project it has really brought an awareness to me about how serious Human Trafficking really is.
      • All of these people who are being trafficked are just being abused and someone that we know can be affected by this problem.
      • I agree with the solution of bringing more awareness to the seriousness of this crime.
      • Their needs to be more attention brought to human trafficking and what to look for.
    • Relation to thesis
      • If human trafficking is cruel and unforgiving then why is it that it is taking place all over the world, and especially here right in the United States.
      • All the people who are trafficked into the U.S. from foreign nations, whose families are suffering because they do not know where their son/daughter is.
      • There needs to be something done to bring attention to this very disgusting crime.
      • How can all of us in this classroom help out on this serious situation?
