Human trafficking is challenging to discuss – and even upsetting to think about. But victims deserve our support, so it’s important for us to talk about it. They need us to speak out and take action against what’s happening. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, technology has helped trafficking move further underground, and limited government capacity makes it harder for local officials to reach and save victims.
- An estimated 150 million children worldwide are engaged in child labor.
- Women and girls are disproportionately affected by human trafficking, accounting for 71% of all victims.
- 3.8 million adults are trafficked for forced sexual exploitation and 1 million children are trafficked for commercial sexual exploitation.
