Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked in countries around the world, including in the United States. It is estimated that human trafficking generates many billions of dollars of profit per year, second only to drug trafficking. Drugs can only be sold once, but a person can be sold over and over. Sex trafficking is defined as using force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of commercial sex act. The greater Milwaukee area has one of the highest rates of sex trafficking activity in the country. Traffickers look for people who are vulnerable for a variety of reasons. Victims can be male or female, rural or urban, any race, any social class, any age. It is an invisible crime that is happening everywhere, including all 72 counties in Wisconsin.
But there is hope.

Because People Are Not Property.
*When we use the term "victim" to describe people who have experienced sexual exploitation, the purpose is to reflect terminology used in the United States Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000. We affirm those who identify as "survivors".
