Sex Trafficking is a business made up of supply (victims), demand (buyers), and distributors (traffickers). Human Sex Trafficking nets billions of dollars worldwide and is the second largest criminal industry in the world and the fastest growing. It is modern day slavery in which children (under the age of 18), women, and men are bought and sold for sexual or labor purposes. In the United States of America, children are the largest group trafficked for sex. As educators, we are on the front lines of mitigation. This webinar is designed to provide you with the tools and resources to prevent and mitigate this atrocity in our schools and community.
