Human Trafficking

 

Written by: Amber Greenhill

Many think that human trafficking is in many other countries but not in the U.S. As of 2014, a few cases have been brought up about human trafficking within the country.  Different types of human trafficking include forced labor, child exploitation, sex trafficking, and organ removal.

Bringing awareness to this subject can lead to a greater decrease in victims. The better understanding people have about the subject will aid in ending this terrible movement.
