Human Trafficking: The Issue
   Versus Propaganda
   & Its Ultimate Solution



Presented by Yolanda Martin



                     Template by PresenterMedia.com
Objective
The purpose of this presentation is to provide insight into
human trafficking or modern-day slavery, which is more
prevalent today than it’s been at any point in human history,
to dispel myths and propaganda that minimize this
dilemma, and to propose viable solutions to it and its
causes.
Insomuch as the chief cause of Human trafficking is
poverty, the proposed solutions will hinge upon emergency
and permanent relief (food, health care, transitional
housing, education, and international industry or business
creation and proliferation).
Definition
Human trafficking is the recruitment, receipt or harboring,
and transporting of people for the purpose of forced labor,
including prostitution, domestic servitude, forced marriage
for the purpose of sex and domestic servitude, and other
forms of sexual exploitation (organ harvesting is another
form of human trafficking).
Scope
The trafficking of humans is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world,
second only to drug trafficking. According to the International Labor Organization, it
has a global annual market of about $44.3 billion. Foreign trafficking for
prostitution in Canada alone is estimated to be worth $400 million. The United
Nations estimates that 12 to 27 million people are trafficked worldwide.
   Victims are usually economically disadvantaged minorities, although they may
    come from any social background, race, or class, and they are often displaced
    persons, like runaways or refugees (Trafficked children in West Africa have lost
    one or both parents to AIDS).
   Agriculture, mining, and forced prostitution are the most prevalent forms of
    human trafficking (Antebellum slavery in America hinged primarily upon
    agriculture).
   Females are especially vulnerable for sex trafficking (70% of victims are women
    and girls), while men are more at risk for being trafficked or forced into
    unskilled labor.
Causes
The chief causes of human trafficking are:
1.   Poverty
2.   Social discrimination
3.   Organized crime
4.   Corruption in government
5.   Insufficient penalties against traffickers
The trafficking of humans is a lucrative industry because it
requires little start-up money, and, unlike drugs, people can be
sold repeatedly. According to the State Department’s Annual
Trafficking in Person’s Report cited by Secretary of State,
Hillary Clinton, the global economic crisis has increased
episodes of human trafficking.
Global Stats
   An estimated 14,000+ people are trafficked into the United States each year.

   In Moldova (or officially the Republic of Moldova), a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, where the
    unemployment rate for women ranges as high as 68%, a third of the workforce lives and works abroad,
    and an estimated 200,000 to 400,000 women (up to 10% of the female population) have been sold into
    prostitution.

   An estimated 300,000 women and children are involved in the sex trade throughout Southeast Asia.

   An estimated 200,000 Nepali girls have been sold into sex slavery in India, many under 14 years of age.

   Many Iraqi women, fleeing the Iraq war, turned to prostitution or are trafficked abroad to countries like
    Syria, which is popular for sex tourism, and where an estimated 50,000 girls and women (many of whom
    are widows) are forced into prostitution.

   In Cambodia, where the average income is less than $300.00 a year, and where around 30,000 children,
    according to Cambodia’s Minister of Women’s Affairs, Mu Soc Hua, are disposable for exploit.

   An estimated 500,000 women from Central and Eastern Europe are working in prostitution in the
    European Union.
The Controllers
    A majority of trafficking is done by networks of small groups in which
     each specialize in certain areas, like recruitment, advertising, retail, or
     transportation.
    In places like Eastern Europe, Russia, Columbia, Hong Kong, and Japan,
     trafficking is controlled by large criminal organizations.
    Trafficked victims in the Russian federation are typically kidnapped and
     sold by police to be used for hard labor, often chained and drugged like
     dogs to prevent them from escaping.
    NATO and United Nations “peacekeeping” forces are even linked to
     human trafficking, including forced prostitution. Rapid increases in
     prostitution were reported in Cambodia after UN forces moved in, and in
     Bosnia and Kosovo after UN and NATO forces settled into these regions.
Recruitment/Tactics
Victims are commonly lured and trafficked through promises of
legitimate employment, like, commonly, in the catering and hotel
industry, clubs, bars, modeling, au pair work (a foreign national
domestic assistant working for and living as part of a host family). They
are typically recruited by use of coercion, deception, abuse of power,
fraud, feigned love, and abduction, and through newspaper ads, the
internet, pseudo employment agencies and front businesses, diplomats,
and employers generally.




Victims are often impelled to consent to exploitation by threats
(including those against family members), violence, and debt bondage.
Dynamics of Trafficked Children
 Children are forced into early marriage as well as prostitution, or they are
  recruited as child soldiers, beggars, or for sports, such as football or child
  camel jockey, or religious cults.
           Young virgin girls are enslaved and used sexually by “priests” in a ritualistic
            system of servitude called trokosi in Ghana or voodoosi in Togo and Benin, and
            are further exploited for free labor within this system of shrine slavery…
           The Fundamental Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the United States
            and Canada has been implicated in the trafficking of minor girls across state and
            international boundaries.
 Thousands   of children from South America, Africa, and Asia are sold into
  the global sex trade. They are often orphaned, kidnapped, or actually sold
  by their families.
 Illicit
       international adoption is a vehicle of the trafficking of babies and
  pregnant women between the developing world and the West.
Propaganda
Itis a hoax, exaggerated, or sensationalized.
Trafficking only occurs in poor countries, when actually every
 country in the world is involved.
 Victims want to be in this industry.
    Trafficking is distinguished from “people smuggling,”
     where there may be no deception involved, and
     individuals voluntarily request smuggler’s services for
     fees.
    Rhetorical debates have further invoked a line of
     demarcation between trafficking and prostitution.
The Pros & Cons of Voluntary Prostitution & People
  Smuggling According to the Yay and Naysayers
                 “Pros”                                               “Cons”
   Some form of income is better than none,         Unethical and exploitative labor practices, from
    or the ends justify the means.                    inhumane or substandard working conditions to
   Those who endorse legalizing prostitution         emotional and physical abuse, often under
    argue that condoms and pimps for                  duress or the threat of deportation, as for
    “protection” somehow dignify the trade.           trafficked refugees and/or immigrants.
                                                     Vulnerability for and for spreading sexually
   Where people smuggling or forms of

    voluntary trafficking are concerned, the          pregnancies and forced abortions.
    electing of these individuals to market          Scarce pay, in some cases, nothing more than a
    themselves supersedes any question of             meal.
    ethics.                                          Trafficked individuals may be provided a place to
   Trafficked individuals (including mail            live, but are less likely to acquire appropriate
    order brides) are provided with a place to        assistance and make more intelligent decisions
    live and may be in a better situation than        on a spouse or mate.
    they were previously.                            Human trafficking perpetuates ignorance, as
   Human Trafficking is a multi-billion dollar       many trafficked children and adults do not
    industry.                                         attend school to improve their odds of gaining
                                                      merited employment, due to the restraints that
                                                      are imposed by traffickers.
                                                     Traffickers do not pay taxes, nor do the millions
                                                      of individuals who are trafficked.
Terminology
Brothel – A place where prostitutes meet to have sex with clients.
Bonded labor (debt bondage) – A practice in which employers give
high-interest loans to workers who then labor at low wages to pay off
debt (A member of the debtor’s family may also be required to work
towards payment of the debt).
Source country – A country that victims are trafficked from, i.e. the
former Soviet territories, Nepal, Nigeria, and Guatemala.
Transit country – A temporary stop, i.e. Mexico, on the trafficked
victim’s journey to the country where they will be enslaved.
Destination country – Where trafficked victims end up.
Sex tourism – Travel undertaken primarily or exclusively by men from
developed countries to usually third world countries where there are
a lack of restrictions on prostitution, and for the purpose of engaging
in sexual activity with often trafficked women and children.
Similar Forms of Human Exploitation
   Quid pro quo harassment is similar to human trafficking in that the victim’s employment is predicated
    upon whether or not they engage in an inappropriate (sexual) relationship with the perpetrator.

   Domestic violence may contribute to human trafficking where the victim is subject to financial control,
    including being prevented from gaining and/or retaining employment or from attending school to increase
    their employability, and the victim’s sole method of survival is reliance upon the perpetrator and/or public
    assistance.

          The victim’s work performance, grades in school, and/or attendance or ability to sustain
           employment may be affected by the perpetrator’s harassment and abuse.

   Employment Blacklisting or Blackballing is a form of or may contribute to human trafficking where an
    existing or former employer attempts to impede the employment of an individual in retaliation for
    protected conduct and/or any other conduct that should not necessarily warrant prejudice against the
    individual for other sought employment, or where the employer or former employer or any other individuals
    involved actually profit, monetarily and/or otherwise, from the individual’s professional bondage.
Conduits
   Law enforcement – The trafficking of humans in corrections systems is one of the most subtle and
    common forms of the trade. It is fair to say, particularly in light of the disproportionate sentencing
    and presence of especially African American minorities in prison who are often used to work for
    little if any pay, that it has all of the makings of a sophisticated form of modern-day chattel slavery
    continuing in America. Though the 13th Amendment does provide for involuntary servitude as
    punishment for crime, there is no expressed legitimization of payment less than minimum wage for
    even a working prisoner, who, if paid minimum wage, should reasonably be expected to pay their
    share of living and other expenses, including health care premiums and income taxes, besides
    stern savings requirements via authorized banks, all of which would feed forcefully into the
    economy.
   Social service agencies – Some social service agencies, like domestic violence and other shelters
    and even the Department of Family & Children Services or employees of these agencies have
    endorsed improprieties.
   Organized religion – Christianity was and remains, with other forms of religion, namely Islam, a
    catalyst of slavery involving especially women and children in America and abroad.
Legislation
•   The 13th Amendment prohibits slavery and/or involuntary
    servitude.
•   The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of
    2000 provides greater maximum sentences for traffickers,
    and provides resources for protection of and assistance for
    victims of trafficking…
•   Human trafficking is a federal crime under Title 18 of the
    United States Code, section 1584 making it a crime to force
    a person to work against their will, whether by use or threat
    of force or a “climate of fear” wherein individuals believe they
    may be harmed by leaving or refusing to work.
PROPOSED SOLUTIONS
An International Office of DFACS and Authority of Housing

The International Office of the Department of Family & Children Services and Authority
of Housing, which would be funded by the United Nations via its proportionate
collection of fees and/or taxes from all of its member nations, other synonymous
agencies, and private donors from every point of the globe, would provide basic living
necessities to individuals, families and children in crisis in developing and other nations
in need of such services, to include the following:
1.    Emergency food
2.    Clean water (for cooking, drinking, bathing, and clothes washing)
3.    Health benefits (including birth control, dental services, etc.)
4.    Emergency, transitional, and/or permanent housing
5.    Clothing & toiletries
6.    Employment services (primarily online and other outsourced opportunities, to
      precede the proliferation of industry/local businesses that could provide traditional
      employment, for which transportation accommodations would be made).
Solutions/Resources
     Proportionate UN fee or tax collection from all member nations for the
      purpose of global relief
     Church and business resource pooling
           Development of an International Department of Family & Children
            Services
           The globalization/proliferation of Job Corps Programs
           The globalization/proliferation of Housing in Developing Nations
           Proliferation of international residential education programs for
            children
     The World Bank
           The globalization/proliferation of American and other businesses in
            developing nations
     Colleges & Universities
The College/University Student-Residence Solution
   The college/university student-residence solution would entail the disbursement of a set number of full
    scholarships that would cover tuition as well as room and board to trafficked victims who are high school
    graduates or who have acquired General Equivalency Diplomas, and meet matriculation requirements to the
    sponsoring colleges or universities.
           There are well over 4,350 colleges in the United States alone, and over 17,000 colleges and universities in
            the world, meaning that, if American colleges/universities sponsored/housed 10 trafficked victims each
            year, 43,500 would be rescued, and, if every college/university in the world sponsored 10 trafficked victims
            annually, 170,000 would be rescued.
   Supplemental collegiate dormitories for low income and overflow students who may not be accommodated with
    traditional campus housing due to space or slot limitations would help to shield many from distractions and
    hardships that are cause that some especially female students are lured or forced or voluntarily resort to self-
    exploitative practices, like stripping, etc. for the purpose of meeting school-related expenses. Each of these
    students, or those who are classified as low income could be required to volunteer for no more than 20 hours per
    week with designated companies or agencies, for the purpose of off-setting some of their expenses and receiving
    a modest stipend and/or transportation assistance.
           Supplemental dormitories would consist of full-service computer & printing labs, childcare (another issue
            that stands in major need of address amongst low income students), and shuttles that would transport
            students to and from campus throughout each school day.
The Globalization/Proliferation of Job Corps Programs
Residential job training programs like Job Corps could serve as a major vehicle of
resolve of the human trafficking dilemma, seeing particularly that many individuals
are lured by traffickers through promises of education and employment. Job Corps
is a free job training program that provides three meals a day, childcare, clothing
allotments, transportation, health services, pay, and job placement services to
underprivileged youth between the ages of 16 to 24 years old.
   The program should be weaned of minors (16-17 year olds), however, which
    comprise about 40% of its overall student population. These students should be
    compelled to attend traditional public schools through graduation, or at least to
    18 years of age, whichever comes first (Job Corps pays more than $30,000
    annually for services to students, while the public school system pays roughly
    $6,000 annually for student services). Weaning the program of minors would
    clear about 40,000 slots across its existent 123 centers in the United States that
    could be filled by trafficked victims. Job Corps should also service adults who are
    older than 24 years of age who could benefit from their services.
Proliferation of Residential Programs for Children &
 Families of School-age Children
The issue of homeless children/homeless families with school-age children is within the local and global jurisdiction of the
Departments of Education and Family & Children Services, and warrants the financial support of the United Nations, which has
the power to collect fees from each of its developed member nations for this and other purposes, including global
peacekeeping military initiatives that would alleviate the financial burdens of any lone or few nations endeavoring to be world
police. EVERY homeless child and capable parent(s) or guardian(s) of every homeless child within the United States and in
every nation of the world should be immediately accommodated with emergency housing, food, and other vital resources, and
then all other homeless persons, and for the ultimate purpose of providing means for these individuals to achieve self-
sufficiency through education and/or employment.

          Under-enrolled schools would be utilized for the purpose of educating homeless children, many of whom have never
           attended or have difficulty attending school due to the nature of their circumstances. Residential facilities would be
           established for families with school-age children attending these particular schools within their respective school
           zones/regions—a single facility would house students from multiple schools within the region of an under-enrolled
           school that is utilized for the prescribed purpose. Parents/guardians participating in these programs would be
           compelled to participate in career service initiatives in which they would conduct job searches and/or pursue
           educational opportunities, and, once employed, will be required to pay rent. Any such residential facilities that
           become under-used should be utilized to accommodate homeless families with school-age children from other
           school districts, or even other states or countries.
The Globalization/Proliferation of Housing in
Developing Nations
The proliferation of housing in developing nations
Habitat for Humanity
The Globalization/Proliferation of American and other
Businesses in Developing Nations
Our developing nations should be viewed as opportunities to expand/grow American and
other businesses and wealth, while providing employment and other human resources to
poor and displaced persons around the globe.
The proliferation of American and other businesses and franchising opportunities in
developing nations will also provide a solid foundation and materials with which to build
native grown businesses within these historically impoverished/famished nations and
pioneer the ultimate industrialization of our entire world, and on *alternative/clean
energy sources that would not further contribute to the mounting climate crisis.
* What is termed alternative energy today (solar, etc.) should be the primary energy
source and traditional energy sources (fossil fuels, etc.) should be the alternative
(backup) for the sake of environmental healing; and the fossil fuel and oil industries
would be of the ideals to market solar and other forms of clean energy while tapping into
the greater wealth of the vast previously untapped markets of our developing nations.
Conclusion

Human trafficking is a silent epidemic essentially because of
laws forbidding it, the voicelessness of its victims due to fear,
poverty, and gender discrimination, and because of cover
tactics of traffickers.
Human trafficking destroys the moral fiber of the country and
world at large, and, though it is a multi-billion dollar industry, it
is a major attributor to the world’s financial crisis, as traffickers
and their millions of victims do not pay taxes, and victims, who
outnumber traffickers, do not typically support our consumer
markets, as they would if they were availed educational and
legitimate employment opportunities.

Human trafficking the issue versus propaganda & its ultimate solution

  • 1. Human Trafficking: The Issue Versus Propaganda & Its Ultimate Solution Presented by Yolanda Martin Template by PresenterMedia.com
  • 2. Objective The purpose of this presentation is to provide insight into human trafficking or modern-day slavery, which is more prevalent today than it’s been at any point in human history, to dispel myths and propaganda that minimize this dilemma, and to propose viable solutions to it and its causes. Insomuch as the chief cause of Human trafficking is poverty, the proposed solutions will hinge upon emergency and permanent relief (food, health care, transitional housing, education, and international industry or business creation and proliferation).
  • 3. Definition Human trafficking is the recruitment, receipt or harboring, and transporting of people for the purpose of forced labor, including prostitution, domestic servitude, forced marriage for the purpose of sex and domestic servitude, and other forms of sexual exploitation (organ harvesting is another form of human trafficking).
  • 4. Scope The trafficking of humans is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world, second only to drug trafficking. According to the International Labor Organization, it has a global annual market of about $44.3 billion. Foreign trafficking for prostitution in Canada alone is estimated to be worth $400 million. The United Nations estimates that 12 to 27 million people are trafficked worldwide.  Victims are usually economically disadvantaged minorities, although they may come from any social background, race, or class, and they are often displaced persons, like runaways or refugees (Trafficked children in West Africa have lost one or both parents to AIDS).  Agriculture, mining, and forced prostitution are the most prevalent forms of human trafficking (Antebellum slavery in America hinged primarily upon agriculture).  Females are especially vulnerable for sex trafficking (70% of victims are women and girls), while men are more at risk for being trafficked or forced into unskilled labor.
  • 5. Causes The chief causes of human trafficking are: 1. Poverty 2. Social discrimination 3. Organized crime 4. Corruption in government 5. Insufficient penalties against traffickers The trafficking of humans is a lucrative industry because it requires little start-up money, and, unlike drugs, people can be sold repeatedly. According to the State Department’s Annual Trafficking in Person’s Report cited by Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, the global economic crisis has increased episodes of human trafficking.
  • 6. Global Stats  An estimated 14,000+ people are trafficked into the United States each year.  In Moldova (or officially the Republic of Moldova), a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, where the unemployment rate for women ranges as high as 68%, a third of the workforce lives and works abroad, and an estimated 200,000 to 400,000 women (up to 10% of the female population) have been sold into prostitution.  An estimated 300,000 women and children are involved in the sex trade throughout Southeast Asia.  An estimated 200,000 Nepali girls have been sold into sex slavery in India, many under 14 years of age.  Many Iraqi women, fleeing the Iraq war, turned to prostitution or are trafficked abroad to countries like Syria, which is popular for sex tourism, and where an estimated 50,000 girls and women (many of whom are widows) are forced into prostitution.  In Cambodia, where the average income is less than $300.00 a year, and where around 30,000 children, according to Cambodia’s Minister of Women’s Affairs, Mu Soc Hua, are disposable for exploit.  An estimated 500,000 women from Central and Eastern Europe are working in prostitution in the European Union.
  • 7. The Controllers  A majority of trafficking is done by networks of small groups in which each specialize in certain areas, like recruitment, advertising, retail, or transportation.  In places like Eastern Europe, Russia, Columbia, Hong Kong, and Japan, trafficking is controlled by large criminal organizations.  Trafficked victims in the Russian federation are typically kidnapped and sold by police to be used for hard labor, often chained and drugged like dogs to prevent them from escaping.  NATO and United Nations “peacekeeping” forces are even linked to human trafficking, including forced prostitution. Rapid increases in prostitution were reported in Cambodia after UN forces moved in, and in Bosnia and Kosovo after UN and NATO forces settled into these regions.
  • 8. Recruitment/Tactics Victims are commonly lured and trafficked through promises of legitimate employment, like, commonly, in the catering and hotel industry, clubs, bars, modeling, au pair work (a foreign national domestic assistant working for and living as part of a host family). They are typically recruited by use of coercion, deception, abuse of power, fraud, feigned love, and abduction, and through newspaper ads, the internet, pseudo employment agencies and front businesses, diplomats, and employers generally. Victims are often impelled to consent to exploitation by threats (including those against family members), violence, and debt bondage.
  • 9. Dynamics of Trafficked Children  Children are forced into early marriage as well as prostitution, or they are recruited as child soldiers, beggars, or for sports, such as football or child camel jockey, or religious cults.  Young virgin girls are enslaved and used sexually by “priests” in a ritualistic system of servitude called trokosi in Ghana or voodoosi in Togo and Benin, and are further exploited for free labor within this system of shrine slavery…  The Fundamental Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the United States and Canada has been implicated in the trafficking of minor girls across state and international boundaries.  Thousands of children from South America, Africa, and Asia are sold into the global sex trade. They are often orphaned, kidnapped, or actually sold by their families.  Illicit international adoption is a vehicle of the trafficking of babies and pregnant women between the developing world and the West.
  • 10. Propaganda Itis a hoax, exaggerated, or sensationalized. Trafficking only occurs in poor countries, when actually every country in the world is involved.  Victims want to be in this industry.  Trafficking is distinguished from “people smuggling,” where there may be no deception involved, and individuals voluntarily request smuggler’s services for fees.  Rhetorical debates have further invoked a line of demarcation between trafficking and prostitution.
  • 11. The Pros & Cons of Voluntary Prostitution & People Smuggling According to the Yay and Naysayers “Pros” “Cons”  Some form of income is better than none,  Unethical and exploitative labor practices, from or the ends justify the means. inhumane or substandard working conditions to  Those who endorse legalizing prostitution emotional and physical abuse, often under argue that condoms and pimps for duress or the threat of deportation, as for “protection” somehow dignify the trade. trafficked refugees and/or immigrants.  Vulnerability for and for spreading sexually  Where people smuggling or forms of transmitted diseases and for undesirable voluntary trafficking are concerned, the pregnancies and forced abortions. electing of these individuals to market  Scarce pay, in some cases, nothing more than a themselves supersedes any question of meal. ethics.  Trafficked individuals may be provided a place to  Trafficked individuals (including mail live, but are less likely to acquire appropriate order brides) are provided with a place to assistance and make more intelligent decisions live and may be in a better situation than on a spouse or mate. they were previously.  Human trafficking perpetuates ignorance, as  Human Trafficking is a multi-billion dollar many trafficked children and adults do not industry. attend school to improve their odds of gaining merited employment, due to the restraints that are imposed by traffickers.  Traffickers do not pay taxes, nor do the millions of individuals who are trafficked.
  • 12. Terminology Brothel – A place where prostitutes meet to have sex with clients. Bonded labor (debt bondage) – A practice in which employers give high-interest loans to workers who then labor at low wages to pay off debt (A member of the debtor’s family may also be required to work towards payment of the debt). Source country – A country that victims are trafficked from, i.e. the former Soviet territories, Nepal, Nigeria, and Guatemala. Transit country – A temporary stop, i.e. Mexico, on the trafficked victim’s journey to the country where they will be enslaved. Destination country – Where trafficked victims end up. Sex tourism – Travel undertaken primarily or exclusively by men from developed countries to usually third world countries where there are a lack of restrictions on prostitution, and for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with often trafficked women and children.
  • 13. Similar Forms of Human Exploitation  Quid pro quo harassment is similar to human trafficking in that the victim’s employment is predicated upon whether or not they engage in an inappropriate (sexual) relationship with the perpetrator.  Domestic violence may contribute to human trafficking where the victim is subject to financial control, including being prevented from gaining and/or retaining employment or from attending school to increase their employability, and the victim’s sole method of survival is reliance upon the perpetrator and/or public assistance.  The victim’s work performance, grades in school, and/or attendance or ability to sustain employment may be affected by the perpetrator’s harassment and abuse.  Employment Blacklisting or Blackballing is a form of or may contribute to human trafficking where an existing or former employer attempts to impede the employment of an individual in retaliation for protected conduct and/or any other conduct that should not necessarily warrant prejudice against the individual for other sought employment, or where the employer or former employer or any other individuals involved actually profit, monetarily and/or otherwise, from the individual’s professional bondage.
  • 14. Conduits  Law enforcement – The trafficking of humans in corrections systems is one of the most subtle and common forms of the trade. It is fair to say, particularly in light of the disproportionate sentencing and presence of especially African American minorities in prison who are often used to work for little if any pay, that it has all of the makings of a sophisticated form of modern-day chattel slavery continuing in America. Though the 13th Amendment does provide for involuntary servitude as punishment for crime, there is no expressed legitimization of payment less than minimum wage for even a working prisoner, who, if paid minimum wage, should reasonably be expected to pay their share of living and other expenses, including health care premiums and income taxes, besides stern savings requirements via authorized banks, all of which would feed forcefully into the economy.  Social service agencies – Some social service agencies, like domestic violence and other shelters and even the Department of Family & Children Services or employees of these agencies have endorsed improprieties.  Organized religion – Christianity was and remains, with other forms of religion, namely Islam, a catalyst of slavery involving especially women and children in America and abroad.
  • 15. Legislation • The 13th Amendment prohibits slavery and/or involuntary servitude. • The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000 provides greater maximum sentences for traffickers, and provides resources for protection of and assistance for victims of trafficking… • Human trafficking is a federal crime under Title 18 of the United States Code, section 1584 making it a crime to force a person to work against their will, whether by use or threat of force or a “climate of fear” wherein individuals believe they may be harmed by leaving or refusing to work.
  • 17. An International Office of DFACS and Authority of Housing The International Office of the Department of Family & Children Services and Authority of Housing, which would be funded by the United Nations via its proportionate collection of fees and/or taxes from all of its member nations, other synonymous agencies, and private donors from every point of the globe, would provide basic living necessities to individuals, families and children in crisis in developing and other nations in need of such services, to include the following: 1. Emergency food 2. Clean water (for cooking, drinking, bathing, and clothes washing) 3. Health benefits (including birth control, dental services, etc.) 4. Emergency, transitional, and/or permanent housing 5. Clothing & toiletries 6. Employment services (primarily online and other outsourced opportunities, to precede the proliferation of industry/local businesses that could provide traditional employment, for which transportation accommodations would be made).
  • 18. Solutions/Resources  Proportionate UN fee or tax collection from all member nations for the purpose of global relief  Church and business resource pooling  Development of an International Department of Family & Children Services  The globalization/proliferation of Job Corps Programs  The globalization/proliferation of Housing in Developing Nations  Proliferation of international residential education programs for children  The World Bank  The globalization/proliferation of American and other businesses in developing nations  Colleges & Universities
  • 19. The College/University Student-Residence Solution  The college/university student-residence solution would entail the disbursement of a set number of full scholarships that would cover tuition as well as room and board to trafficked victims who are high school graduates or who have acquired General Equivalency Diplomas, and meet matriculation requirements to the sponsoring colleges or universities.  There are well over 4,350 colleges in the United States alone, and over 17,000 colleges and universities in the world, meaning that, if American colleges/universities sponsored/housed 10 trafficked victims each year, 43,500 would be rescued, and, if every college/university in the world sponsored 10 trafficked victims annually, 170,000 would be rescued.  Supplemental collegiate dormitories for low income and overflow students who may not be accommodated with traditional campus housing due to space or slot limitations would help to shield many from distractions and hardships that are cause that some especially female students are lured or forced or voluntarily resort to self- exploitative practices, like stripping, etc. for the purpose of meeting school-related expenses. Each of these students, or those who are classified as low income could be required to volunteer for no more than 20 hours per week with designated companies or agencies, for the purpose of off-setting some of their expenses and receiving a modest stipend and/or transportation assistance.  Supplemental dormitories would consist of full-service computer & printing labs, childcare (another issue that stands in major need of address amongst low income students), and shuttles that would transport students to and from campus throughout each school day.
  • 20. The Globalization/Proliferation of Job Corps Programs Residential job training programs like Job Corps could serve as a major vehicle of resolve of the human trafficking dilemma, seeing particularly that many individuals are lured by traffickers through promises of education and employment. Job Corps is a free job training program that provides three meals a day, childcare, clothing allotments, transportation, health services, pay, and job placement services to underprivileged youth between the ages of 16 to 24 years old.  The program should be weaned of minors (16-17 year olds), however, which comprise about 40% of its overall student population. These students should be compelled to attend traditional public schools through graduation, or at least to 18 years of age, whichever comes first (Job Corps pays more than $30,000 annually for services to students, while the public school system pays roughly $6,000 annually for student services). Weaning the program of minors would clear about 40,000 slots across its existent 123 centers in the United States that could be filled by trafficked victims. Job Corps should also service adults who are older than 24 years of age who could benefit from their services.
  • 21. Proliferation of Residential Programs for Children & Families of School-age Children The issue of homeless children/homeless families with school-age children is within the local and global jurisdiction of the Departments of Education and Family & Children Services, and warrants the financial support of the United Nations, which has the power to collect fees from each of its developed member nations for this and other purposes, including global peacekeeping military initiatives that would alleviate the financial burdens of any lone or few nations endeavoring to be world police. EVERY homeless child and capable parent(s) or guardian(s) of every homeless child within the United States and in every nation of the world should be immediately accommodated with emergency housing, food, and other vital resources, and then all other homeless persons, and for the ultimate purpose of providing means for these individuals to achieve self- sufficiency through education and/or employment.  Under-enrolled schools would be utilized for the purpose of educating homeless children, many of whom have never attended or have difficulty attending school due to the nature of their circumstances. Residential facilities would be established for families with school-age children attending these particular schools within their respective school zones/regions—a single facility would house students from multiple schools within the region of an under-enrolled school that is utilized for the prescribed purpose. Parents/guardians participating in these programs would be compelled to participate in career service initiatives in which they would conduct job searches and/or pursue educational opportunities, and, once employed, will be required to pay rent. Any such residential facilities that become under-used should be utilized to accommodate homeless families with school-age children from other school districts, or even other states or countries.
  • 22. The Globalization/Proliferation of Housing in Developing Nations The proliferation of housing in developing nations Habitat for Humanity
  • 23. The Globalization/Proliferation of American and other Businesses in Developing Nations Our developing nations should be viewed as opportunities to expand/grow American and other businesses and wealth, while providing employment and other human resources to poor and displaced persons around the globe. The proliferation of American and other businesses and franchising opportunities in developing nations will also provide a solid foundation and materials with which to build native grown businesses within these historically impoverished/famished nations and pioneer the ultimate industrialization of our entire world, and on *alternative/clean energy sources that would not further contribute to the mounting climate crisis. * What is termed alternative energy today (solar, etc.) should be the primary energy source and traditional energy sources (fossil fuels, etc.) should be the alternative (backup) for the sake of environmental healing; and the fossil fuel and oil industries would be of the ideals to market solar and other forms of clean energy while tapping into the greater wealth of the vast previously untapped markets of our developing nations.
  • 24. Conclusion Human trafficking is a silent epidemic essentially because of laws forbidding it, the voicelessness of its victims due to fear, poverty, and gender discrimination, and because of cover tactics of traffickers. Human trafficking destroys the moral fiber of the country and world at large, and, though it is a multi-billion dollar industry, it is a major attributor to the world’s financial crisis, as traffickers and their millions of victims do not pay taxes, and victims, who outnumber traffickers, do not typically support our consumer markets, as they would if they were availed educational and legitimate employment opportunities.
