Sex trafficking, forced labor, child labor, child sex trafficking and indentured servitude are all forms of human trafficking found in United States. The human traffickingepidemic has reached global proportions with the United States being one of the top destination countries for human trafficking victims. CaliforniaNew York and Texasare the top states for human trafficking but by no means the only states where human trafficking is found. No matter the state or country where it occurs,  human trafficking is a rising global epidemic that needs to be stopped.

North Carolina consistently ranks in the top ten states for human trafficking violations thanks to our agriculture-based economy, our large military and international population, our presence as a travel hub by air, land, or sea, and our never-ending abundance of male-dominated sporting events (NASCAR and football, just to name a few).
