The US Department of State estimates that 600,000 to 800,000 victims are trafficked through international borders each year, which does not include countless numbers trafficked domestically within their own countries. Human trafficking is considered the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the 21st century - a nine billion dollar industry. The United States is one of the top three destination points for trafficked victims, the majority of which are women and children.
While domestic violence and human trafficking are different forms of victimization, many similarities and points of intersection exist. Traffickers prey on those who suffer most from social factors like gender discrimination, violence and abuse. This workship will provide an overview of human trafficking in the United States and in colorado and offer concrete tools and resources for effective response.
