Description

Although some may believe slavery ended when it was abolished by the 13th Amendment in 1865, in fact, there are more slaves today than there were at any given time in history (McNally, 2009). Human trafficking is a major form of modern day slavery that exists in the United States, entrapping men, women, and children that hinder them from any form of freedom they once had. Human trafficking occurs in our communities affecting the lives of innocent people being lured into this nightmare. This thesis will focus on human trafficking in the United States with an emphasis on who is susceptible to this form of modern day slavery.
