Part of our "Spotlight on Women and Girls" Series.
Human trafficking is often approached as a women and children’s human rights and social justice issue. Rightly so, considering the U.S. State Department estimates 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year with 14,500 to 17,500 people trafficked into the U.S. each year. More than 70% are female and half are children.
But what would happen if we shifted the approach to focus on the trafficking industry? Human trafficking is a business. It represents the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It reportedly generates a profit of $32 billion every year. Of that number, $15.5 billion is made in industrialized countries.
Join in this conversation where foundation, nonprofit, and academic experts will discuss how philanthropy can help bust the business of trafficking women and girls.
