Mientras el número de víctimas de tráfico aumentó en 2020, también lo hizo el de traficantes. Personas que trafican normalmente trabajan como propietarios o responsables de burdeles o falsos negocios de masajes, empleadores de servicios domésticos como niñeras o sirvientas, miembros de pandillas o redes criminales, reclutadores de mano de obra agrícola, propietarios de fábricas, proxenetas, propietarios de pequeños negocios, mano de obra, asociados de cuidado adoptivo o trabajadores sexuales. Mientras pueden trabajar también en el sector informal, traficantes humanos pueden ser también

La pandemia de la COVID-19 ha mostrado de forma más clara las tendencias y patrones del tráfico, que han sido establecidas desde 1950, así como las nuevas formas de tráfico de personas con el internet. El seguimiento, así como otros crímenes en la sombra, es difícil de entender en su totalidad. Desde la pandemia, la exigencia para las víctimas ha aumentado para poder cumplir con esta demanda creciente e incremento de vulnerabilidad. A pesar de que California tiene el número más alto de personas víctimas de tráfico por año debido a su población (seguido por Texas y Florida), Nevada tiene el

Lea esto en español Just as the number of trafficking victims increased in 2020, so did the number of traffickers. People who traffic usually work as brothel and fake massage business owners or managers, employers of domestic servants like nannies or maids, members of gangs or criminal networks, agricultural labor recruiters or farm growers, factory owners, pimps, small business owners or managers, labor brokers, foster care affiliates, or sex workers. While they may also work in the informal sector, human traffickers can also be the romantic partner or family member of the victim.

Lea esto en español Trafficking victims come from many different types of backgrounds — they are diverse and often go unnoticed. Survivors of trafficking are part of your community — they might be the person who services our vehicle at a local auto repair shop, the teenager working at their families restaurant, or a close friend or family member who never shared their story.   Across the board, we don’t have much information about the victims of human trafficking. It is an industry shrouded in shame, fear, and secrecy. What we do know is that most trafficking victims identify

Lea esto en español The COVID-19 pandemic has shown more clearly the established trends and patterns of trafficking, which have been in place since 1950, along with new ways to traffic people via the internet. Trafficking, like other underground crimes, are difficult to understand fully. Since the pandemic, the demand for victims has ramped up to meet growing demand and increased vulnerability. Although California has the highest number of persons trafficked per year due to its population (followed by Texas and Florida), Nevada has the highest trafficking per capita. Urban cities

Taking care of your mental health is just as important as caring for your physical health. Not only are we still dealing with a public health crisis, but we are also in the midst of a mental health crisis. In particular, the financial, emotional, and social stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic are exacerbated for communities of color, who are also dealing with the compounding effects of systemic racism. At NSVRC, we focus a lot on health equity, which our partners at Prevention Institute define as “everyone [having] a fair and just opportunity to attain their full health potential and that no

We’ve released a lot of new tools over the past year to support advocates in their work with male survivors of sexual assault.

The curriculum has six sessions.  Each of the middle four sessions call for participants to start by completing reflection prompts and questions. The sessions then go on
