End Human Trafficking

What is Human Trafficking?

By law the United States defines human trafficking as the use of force, fraud, or coercion to compel a person into commercial sex acts or labor or services against his or her will. The one exception involves minors and commercial sex. Inducing a minor into commercial sex is considered human trafficking regardless of the presence of force, fraud or coercion.  The Action-Means-Purpose (AMP) Model is further used to clarify this, please see chart below.
