San Antonio Against Slavery
Human Trafficking Hotline: 888-373-7888
Human trafficking is rampant throughout the United States.
Human traffickers are profiting an estimated $32 billion a year in the global market.
Human Trafficking is the world's second largest criminal enterprise behind the narcotics trade. Unsuspecting United States citizens, including children, are coerced, kidnapped, and sold into slavery by the false promises of employment and a better life. They are held against their will and forced into lives of illicit sex or labor. Human traffickers are profiting an estimated $32 billion a year in the global market.
Texas has a significant problem with human trafficking. The Department of Justice identified I-10 and IH-35 as major trafficking routes as an estimated one out of every five men, women, and children, who are victims of human trafficking, pass through Texas. Twenty-five percent of all human trafficking victims nationwide have, at one point, been located in Texas, either as a pass-through point or a place where they are long-term captives.
