Human trafficking is an estimated $32 billion-a-year global industry. After drug trafficking, human trafficking is the world’s second most profitable criminal enterprise. The United States is one of the top destination countries for trafficking in persons, and California is one of the nation’s top four destination states for trafficking human beings. Many of the victims involved are children.
This event is open to the community.
