What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which people profit from the control and exploitation of others. Not only is trafficking happening overseas and in every state in the US, but it's also happening in our rural community. The truth is that human trafficking victims have been identified and served right here in Tuscarawas County.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

For me, prostitution wasn’t an option or choice. It was a way of life, a generational thing. My mother was my first trafficker.
We’re (the U.S.) one of the biggest consumers of labor trafficking. It’s not something that happens across the world. It’s something that’s happening here.

Special Agent Homeland Security
Human trafficking can happen to anybody regardless of socioeconomic status, location, race, gender, age, etc. We will continue to fight for these survivors of all backgrounds to ensure they are believed, supported, and safe.
