Debunk the Myths in a min: Trivia quiz to see how savvy you are about human trafficking

Human trafficking is called by many names.  Sometimes it’s referred to as “sex slavery” or “trafficking in persons.”

It is a form of “modern slavery,” but what it really comes down to is EXPLOITATION.

Human trafficking explicitly exploits men, women, and children for the purposes of forced labor and/or commercial sex.
The U.S. federal definition of human trafficking as indicated by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) is:
(a) sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age, or
(b) the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.

Slowly, I'm beginning to realize that what happened to me wasn't my fault, that I was taken advantage of by a group of vile, twisted men. - Survivor

“Trafficking in persons” shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power, or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery, or practices similar to slavery, servitude, or the removal of organs.”

CSEC is an acronym for "Commercially Sexually Exploited Children" -- a term that accurately depicts child victims of sex trafficking.

According to the American Bar Association, "the commercial sexual exploitation of children includes the prostitution of children, child pornography, child sex tourism, and other forms of transactional sex where a child engages in sexual activities to have key needs fulfilled such as food, shelter, or access to education (also known as “survival sex”).
"It includes forms of transactional sex where the sexual abuse of children is not stopped or reported by household members, due to benefits derived by the household from the perpetrator."
