Why do minors need prevention education?
Human trafficking cases have been reported in every state in the United States. Victims range in education levels, socio-economic status, and are foreign nationals or U.S. citizens. Human trafficking is the second largest, fastest growing crime. Experts estimate that there are 40.3 million people trapped in human trafficking at any given point, which is more than any other point in recorded history.
