Human trafficking is used to describe "forcing and transporting people into slavery" (Bales). Traffickers typically lure victims in by promising a better life to them.
Awareness about human trafficking is increasing as the issue becomes more prevalent. In 2015, "1,923 suspects were referred to U.S. attorneys with human trafficking as the lead charge" (Motivans and Snyder). Of these suspects, "more than 9 in 10 (93%)... were convicted" (Motivans and Snyder). Women and children are more common victims of trafficking because "the aim of the trafficker will be to disorient the victim" (Bales).
Despite human trafficking activity, there have been efforts to combat this activity and protect victims. In 2001, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act came into effect, and "several more laws addressing trafficking" have subsequently been added (Bales). Responses to trafficking often focus on "prevention through awareness raising, protection of victims, and prosecution of traffickers" (Bales).
