Demolishing the Demand To Purchase Sex-Trafficked Victims


A Community-Wide Strategy to Fight Against Human Sex Trafficking

Although slavery is commonly thought to be a thing of the past, human sex trafficking still exists today, globally and throughout the United States, when traffickers use force, fraud, or coercion to control other people for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex. There were an estimated 4.8 million victims of sex trafficking worldwide in 2016, and the United States of America leads all other nations in driving demand – meaning citizens of the United States are purchasing sex in greater numbers than any other nation.

County-by-county the TraffickingFree Zone program is implemented in collaboration with community members and leaders, with the focus on arresting and prosecuting sex buyers instead of the victims who are being sold, educating people on sex trafficking and implementing numerous other demand reduction techniques.
