Welcome!

If you are in fear of life for any reason, you are the victim, and there is help! 

Trafficking is the worst form of abuse, so whether you know if you are being trafficked or not, you are probably being abused in some way. You deserve to be getting help.

Many services are equipped to help, no matter what form of abuse you are experiencing, and most do not require that you report this to the police if you do not want to.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Sex Trafficking

It is a form of slavery, in which individuals use Force, Fraud and Coercion to get victims to perform Sexual acts.

But I said yes, so it is not Force, right?

If you are asking this question then you probably really didn’t say yes, but your trafficker is making you think that you did. Learning the true meaning of consent will help you understand that you in fact, probably did not say yes. Click here to watch a video on consent

What is the difference between Sex Trafficking and prostitution?

Trafficking will involve a third party-beneficiary, meaning someone else besides the “john,” or the person receiving the sexual act must be involved. This is often a pimp, boyfriend, friend, or family member.

If I go for help, will they have to tell the police?

Many services offer you the option. Most will just provide you with help in whatever way you need it, and that would include offering to be with you IF you decide to go to the police. 

I know this person, so that is not trafficking, right?

If anyone, including a boyfriend, family member, leader, a friend suggests you do any kind of sexual activity for money, using any means such as Fraud or Coercion, then you are being trafficked. Even if you said yes once but want to stop. If they use that against you to force you to do so again, that is called Sex Trafficking
