Join Safe Horizon in the fight to end modern day slavery.
Together, we can raise awareness about the realities of human trafficking and help victims access the services and support they need rebuild their lives and receive justice.
Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings through recruitment or abduction, by means of force, fraud, or coercion for the purposes of forced labor, debt bondage or sexual exploitation. Human trafficking affects 700,000 to 2 million people worldwide. Thousands of victims are trafficked to or within the United States, and New York City is a recognized focal point for traffickers.

Look for the signs of trafficking
Victims can work in any type of job, but there are common factors to indicate they are being trafficked, such as:
- Having limited or no social interaction
- Receiving little to no monetary compensation
- Being restricted from leaving their location unaccompanied
- Working long hours with few or no breaks
- Experiencing verbal, psychological, sexual and/or physical abuse
