Human Trafficking in Dallas
Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. It involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to exploit human beings for labor or commercial sex.
Every year, millions of men, women, and children in the United States, are involved in human trafficking. They are often lured with false promises and manipulated by people they trust. Then, they are forced and coerced into prostitution, domestic servitude, or other types of labor.
