"Nothing happens just because we are aware of modern slavery,
but nothing will ever happen until we are."
Gary Haugen, International Justice Mission
If you believe you are a victim of human trafficking or may have information about a potential trafficking situation, please contact the Human Trafficking Hotline:
Internet platforms we use every day to connect with each other and share information, including social media, online gaming, and e-mail, are now being used to disseminate and collect child sexual abuse material.
Human trafficking thrives in situations where the rule of law is weak and people lack opportunities. Humanitarian crises and conflict create an environment in which traffickers easily prey upon the vulnerable.
Although found in every country and every region, trafficking in persons remains a hidden crime, with perpetrators operating in the dark corners of the internet and the underbelly of the global economy.
