Today, human trafficking, slavery, and involuntary migration quietly ensnare the lives of an estimated 25 million people, 61 percent of which are women and children. Approximately 700,000 to four million people are trafficked across international borders each year, and up to 50 percent of them are minors. This is not an issue that affects developing countries exclusively. Each year, an estimated 50,000 women and children are trafficked into the United States. The number of U.S. citizens trafficked within the country each year is even higher, with nearly 200,000 American children at risk for trafficking into forced labor and the sex industry. This panel will assess the major issues surrounding trafficking, highlight the progress the human rights community has made, and explore how young people can continue to effectively combat trafficking.
