THERE ARE MANY FORMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING THAT EXIST!
Some forms of modern day slavery are sex slavery, debt bondage, chattel slavery, and domestic servitude . All forms of modern day slavery are from force, and victims live and work in harsh conditions and the situations the victims are in are almost impossible to escape from.
- Sex slavery is when a person is forced into prostitution and is being held against their will.
- Chattel slavery is “race based” slavery. It’s where the people are being bought and sold like they’re property
- Debt bondage is where the people enslaved are in “debt” but not really- the owner is just tricking them so the inflated interest makes it impossible to actually work off being a slave.
- Domestic servitude is being trapped somewhere, and being forced to work with little or no pay.
You won't believe this!

- This criminal enterprise affects up to 27 billion people!
- In 1809 you could buy a slave for $40,000 in 2009 you could buy a slave for $90!
