Human trafficking—a form of modern slavery—is the recruitment, transport, or transfer of persons using force, fraud, or coercion to exploit them for acts of labor or sex. According to the International Labor Organization, human trafficking is the fastest growing organized crime with approximately $150B in annual profits and 40.3M individuals trapped in slave-like conditions.
The transportation industry plays a critical role in combating human trafficking as traffickers often rely on the transportation system to recruit, move, or transfer victims of human trafficking for either sex or forced labor. Additionally, transportation is used to move goods produced by forced and trafficked labor.
This webinar will share state-of-the-art efforts being used to combat this issue in the United States, including the role of transportation in facilitating effective prevention programs and increasing victim identification. It will inform ongoing efforts on legislation, key initiatives, collaboration, data collection, and research on transportation.
