Human, Child, and Sex TraffickingHuman trafficking is a genderless crime and affects many different types of people. Although many Americans believe that human trafficking only happens in other countries, that is a poor misconception. Over the past decade human ‘trafficking’ in various forms has received increasing global and domestic attention. Initially, trafficking of women and girls for forced prostitution, or domestic servitude, were the sole focus of advocacy and assistance. Many major TV and movie productions focused on this type of trafficking solely. Today, there is recognition that women, children, and men are trafficked in different forms; labor, sexual exploitation, and drugs.
Unfortunately in our ever more global society it is important to teach about the risks of human trafficking. Students from around the world have created these storyboards to examine scenarios leading to one of the worst crimes on humanity.For primary resources on these topics we recommend visiting the world health organization’s website or the US department of State websites.
We hope these storyboards help you, and please do your part to prevent human trafficking.
