(Human Trafficking takes several forms)…The Imperial Valley Unity Coalition says they all must be reported.
One form is slavery. The Coalition says over 2.5 million people are living in Slavery today. They say Human Trafficking is a form of slavery in which traffickers use force, fraud or coercion to control victims, for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex or labor services against their will. The Coalition says any child engaged in commercial sex is a victim of trafficking. There is no gray area. They say if you or someone you know is a victim of Human Trafficking, you can get help by calling the Bilateral Safety Corridor Coalition at 619-666-2757, or you can text Help To Be Free.
