Human trafficking is a global problem and no country is immune to it. Around the world, millions of victims continue to fall into the hands of traffickers, lured by false promises and deceit.
Data shows that trafficking is happening all around us as the number of persons trafficked within their own country has doubled in recent years to 58% of all detected victims (2018 UNODC Global Report on Trafficking in Persons).
In 2018, Florida again ranked third in the nation in the number of cases reported to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
