Types of Slavery

Sex Trafficking: When someone is taken away from their home or family and transported to another city or country, typically under false promises of new opportunities and a better life. Victims are stripped of their identities and then forced to work against their will. Victims are forced, deceived, or coercing a person to perform a commercial sex act. 

Forced Labor: Any work or service an individual is forced to do, against their will, under the threat of punishment, with little to no pay.

Bonded Labor: Victims are born into slavery, forced to pay a loan, sometimes from generations before them. These people are often indebted through deception and a system stacked against them. 

Domestic Servitude: The practice of live-in help that is used as a cover for exploitation and control of someone, usually from another country.

Child Soldiers: Children (under the age of 18) who are used for military purpose.
