HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS A FORM OF MODERN-DAY SLAVERY
Here’s what it looks like today.
There are 40+ million people in slavery globally.
That’s more than the total population of Canada.
Slavery is a multibillion-dollar industry.
Human trafficking generates $150B annually.
Slave owners prey on the most vulnerable people.
1 in 4 victims of modern slavery is a child. 71%—over 28 million—victims are women and girls.
Trafficking and exploitation don’t just happen in the streets and brothels—it's online, too. Demands for online child sexual exploitation materials have increased around the world during COVID-19, with a 3x increase in some countries.
This problem, that is stealing the freedom and safety from millions around the world, must stop. With you, it can.
For those trapped today, let them hear us. No action is too small. Join Julie & Zach Ertz's team. Sign the pledge to commit to ending trafficking and slavery—until all are free.
