What is Human Trafficking?
Believing in God’s Word and Spirit
According to the United Nations, Human trafficking is “The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of people for the purpose of exploitation”. Victims of Human Trafficking are men, women, and children. Traffickers are able to abduct or kidnap their victims off the street. Most are completely unaware of impending danger. Others are lured by the promise of financial reward. Many victims live in poverty with lack of opportunity and are enticed by the promise of a better future.
Human Trafficking is a multibillion-dollar industry. Sex trafficking accounts for over 80% of the industry. Currently, over 27 million people are entrapped in some form of human slavery across the world. Victims are exploited in various forms of slavery such as sex work, forced labor, or organ removal and selling. Some are held captive to work as domestics, forced marriage, or child labor. While the industry is seemly vast and endless, Bishop James Dixon is a strong advocate for ending Human Trafficking. His partnerships with leading Human Trafficking crusaders have resulted in programs to combat traffickers and to save the lives of countless victims.
One of the nations largest criminal activities is human trafficking. Victims are of any age, gender and social economic background. Traffickers identify potential victims by observing where they live, work or play. Children in poverty are lured by the promise of food, candy, clothes, etc., essentially any item a child would crave to have. Women are abducted off the street, lured by a friend that’s receiving payment. There are a myriad of deviant plans used by human trafficking abductors. Victims spend years in domestic servitude, prostitution, labor camps, force marriage, criminality, child labor, and organ harvesting.
