January is National Human Trafficking Awarness month.   With our work with Project Missing Search and Rescue, we are learning more and more about human/sex trafficking.  This week, as well as Jan. 28th, will be devoted to bringing awarness to this growing problem.  This week is the Detroit Auto Show which is a large international event, these events are often used by traffickers to sell sex.  Victims can be female or male, ages normally are from 12 years old and up.  

 Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery from which traffickers profit from the control and exploitation of others. As defined under US federal law, victims of human trafficking victims in the US include three populations: 
(a) Minors (under age 18) induced into commercial sex—referred to as Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) 
(b) Adults (age 18 or over) involved in commercial sex via force, fraud, or coercion 
(c) Children and adults forced to perform labor and/or services in conditions of involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery through force, fraud, or coercion, such as domestic workers held in a home or farm-workers forced to labor against their will.
