Abstract

Worldwide, thousands of children are forcibly trafficked into the sex trade. Children around the world are trafficked across the world. America is unfortunately no exception. By law, the United States eradicated slavery over a century ago. In practice, however, the practice of enslavement persists on American shores. As a form of modern day slavery, much like its transatlantic predecessor, trafficking today denies human dignity and can leave a deep and lasting legacy of harm that diminishes human capabilities.
