Course Length: 30 minutes

Who should take this course? General public; anyone who wants to learn more about the prevalence of human trafficking in the United States and what steps they can take to prevent and report human trafficking crimes. 

Course description Human Trafficking in the US is among the least understood and least visible crimes in our country. Yet, at least 400,000 people in the US currently live in situations of modern slavery. While Human Trafficking takes many forms, the most common exploitations in the U.S. occur through sex and labor trafficking. Through real life stories and interactive scenarios, Human Trafficking in the United States: The Truth and What You Can Do About It will shed light on the myths and facts of Human Trafficking in the United States. You'll learn what makes some people more vulnerable than others to being victimized by a trafficker; the industries, places and situations that are often leveraged by perpetrators for exploitation; why this egregious crime goes undetected so often and most importantly, how you can spot the signs of human trafficking in every day situations and take action on behalf of victims.

  • Define “human trafficking”
