Understanding Sex Trafficking in the United States
Puerto , Kurt Francis
Human trafficking is a major issue in the world today, with over 40 million victims accross the globe. Human trafficking has three categories, labor trafficking, sex trafficking, and organ trafficking. The focus of my research is on sex trafficking in the united states. My goal is to understand how sex trafficking happens in the United States, in order to then better understand how to combat it. My primary goal is to be able to educate people who work in different fields where victims of sex trafficking are encountered as well as people who are part of vulnerable populations to sex trafficking. My paper is broken up into three different sections. The first section of the paper analyzes what sex trafficking is and how it happens in the US. The second section of the paper looks at what makes certain groups more vulnerable to sex trafficking, and then examines the current efforts by the US government in combatting human trafficking. The final section of the paper proposes effective strategies for combating sex trafficking within the United States.
