Human trafficking is the second largest criminal enterprise in the world - and it is increasing at an exponential rate. More than half of the victims of human trafficking are minors. Northern Virginia and the Washington metropolitan area have among the largest number of cases of human trafficking in the U.S.

Find out how you can recognize signs of human trafficking happening in our communities, and help stop this assault on human dignity.

“People think of human trafficking as kids being kidnapped, kids disappearing. Ninety percent of the kids being trafficked live at home, sleep in their own beds and go to school every day.” - Bill Woolf
