Human trafficking is related to sex and labor. The federal definition of human trafficking is when a person is induced by force, fraud or coercion to perform a sex act for money or anything of value or work under the total or near-total control of another person or organization. Human trafficking is considered modern-day slavery. According to the International Labour Organization, human trafficking generates $32 billion annually. In light of the Shaniya Davis incident locally, the fort Bragg Area Alumnae Chapter wanted to bring awareness to this troubling issue.
