difficult, but all the more important. So even
if you know some information about human

    sells them for labor or to a pimp. Sometimes
    this is a boyfriend, a neighbor, or even a family
  • The trafficker is the one who controls the
    victims. Making the victim fearful through
    abuse, threats, and lies the trafficker gains
    power over his/her victim.
  • The victim could be anyone.

    by purchasing goods and services. Often s/he is

How can you tell if a situation is human
  • Identifying human trafficking can be difficult
    for many reasons.
  • Victims do not identify themselves due to fear
    and shame.
  • Traffickers keep their victims secluded from all
    forms of contact.
  • 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.

    If consumers stopped funding the human
    trafficking industry by purchasing goods and
    services related to human trafficking, the human
    trafficking industry would shrink until human
    trafficking did not exist.
  • Goods that are certified fair trade insure that
    workers receive fair wages and working
  • If consumers knew more about human trafficking,
    they would think twice about where they spend
    their money.
