Sex Trafficking is Slavery

Imagine... A girl fights with her mother and runs out of the house. The girl needs a place to cool off and stays with her friend's older brother. Instead of helping the girl return home the next day, he confines her to a room, beats her, and sells her on the Internet as a prostitute. She cannot leave because he, now her pimp, threatens her with death if she does.

This is the face of sex trafficking. While every case is different and disturbing in its own way, a common thread runs through them all - someone being held against their will and forced to perform sex acts for little to no benefit to themselves.

"Enslaved in America" is a project produced by students at the University of North Carolina that aims to dispel myths and uncover truths about this modern day form of slavery.
