- Human Trafficking and Sexual Explotation
- United States of America
Human trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, harbouring, or receipt of people for the purposes of slavery, forced labor and servitude. The total annual revenue for trafficking in persons is estimated to be between $5 billion and $9 billion.
Trafficking victims typically are recruited using coercion, deception, fraud, the abuse of power, or outright abduction. Threats, violence, and economic leverage such as debt bondage can often make a victim consent to sexual exploitation.
It needs to be understood that slavery is still a pressing issue on a global basis. People, especially women and children, are subject to harsh, forced labor that they have no control over.
This year's Legal Committee is calling on the efforts of every delegate and advisor to bring awareness to this issue and help combat it.
By signing this petition, you are acknowledging that slavery still exists and YOU want to see its abolishment.
