Human Trafficking

     "The action or practice of illegally transporting people from one country or area to another, typically for the purposes of forced labor or sexual exploitation" (Oxford English Dictionary).

     Trafficking in persons is not only a serious crime, but also an egregious violation of human rights.  It is estimated that thousand of men, women, and children fall into the hand of human traffickers every year and that nearly every country in the world is affected, whether as a country of origin, transit, or destination (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime).
