Human trafficking is a form of slavery. According to the US State Department's 2019 Trafficking in Persons Report, a staggering 24.9 million people world wide have lost their freedom and human dignity through human trafficking. Furthermore, the US State Department estimates that 14,500 to 17,500 people are trafficked into the US each year from other countries. However, hundreds of thousands more are subject to American inter-state trafficking. In the United States, victims of trafficking are almost exclusively immigrants, and mostly immigrant women. The average age of trafficking victims in the U.S. is 20. According to Forbes, human trafficking is a pandemic of the 21st century. "Human trafficking is a crime in itself but it is rarely the end goal for the perpetrators. Once the act of human trafficking is complete, it normally leads to further crimes like enslavement, sexual violence and physical violence, among other forms of abuse." Missional leaders are needed in Christian mission entities, nonprofits & NGOs, schools, churches and church groups across the globe to combat this global pandemic.
