Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a world wide issue that happens in our own backyards.


Human trafficking involves the deprivation of liberty of a person in order to exploit the victim for labor, services, and/or the sex trade.

wisconsin state law
Wisconsin State Law :

Trafficking means knowingly recruiting, enticing, harboring, transporting, providing, or obtaining an individual without consent of the individual, or attempting to do so; done by any of the following: causing or threatening to cause bodily harm to any individual, causing or threatening


to cause financial harm to any individual, restraining or threatening to restrain any individual, extortion, fraud or deception, debt bondage, controlling any individual’s access to an addictive controlled substance, or using any scheme or pattern to cause an individual to believe that any individual would suffer bodily harm, financial harm, restrain, or other harm; for the purpose of commercial sex acts or labor services.

human trafficking is a hidden crime
Human trafficking is a hidden crime.

Traffickers often operate behind a façade of legal activity and many victims do not self identify as being trafficked or are unable to report for fear of retribution. The available data vastly underestimates the magnitude of trafficking.

characteristics of human trafficking in wisconsin
Characteristics of human trafficking in Wisconsin:

clandestine and hidden

victims often do not self-identify; victims include men, women, and children of every age, race, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, ethnicity, nationality, and religion


Human trafficking includes



and other forms of exploitation

women and children from poverty stricken areas are disproportionately effected


human trafficking occurs in urban (especially metropolitan areas or centers of tourism)

as well as rural settings (especially large farming communities)

perpetrators may be part of an organized crime group, or act on their own

prevalence of human trafficking in wisconsin
Prevalence of human trafficking in Wisconsin:

to date, more than 200 potential cases of trafficking have been identified in Wisconsin, a figure that is likely significantly under actual cases


trafficking occurred in urban and rural areas, in more than half of Wisconsin’s 72 counties;

15% of victims were child victims of commercial sexual exploitation (under 18 years);

75% of victims were victims of sexual trafficking;

approximately 25% were victims of forced labor trafficking


Wisconsin victims of trafficking experience multiple exploitations, eg-a victim might be in an abusive international marriage and forced into prostitution as well

approximately 25% of trafficking victims were male and approximately 90% of those were victims of labor trafficking;


human trafficking in Wisconsin is a crime that disproportionally affects migrants, regardless of citizenship status-there will be significant overlap between social justice action for migrants and human trafficking efforts

about 30% of identified trafficking victims are native-born U.S. citizens, primarily from the Midwest, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois.

power and control factors
Power and control factors:

human trafficking, like all types of exploitation, relies upon a complex dynamic to procure and retain victims

at risk vulnerable populations
At Risk/Vulnerable populations:

oppressed or marginalized groups, inhabitants of impoverished or disaster areas-Native American women are particularly at risk in Wisconsin

individuals with drug dependency,

runaways and at-risk youth,

and migrant workers, temporary foreign workers, and undocumented immigrants


Not only are individuals in this group most likely to respond to traffickers’ methods, they are also the least likely to be protected by law enforcement.

Impoverished women and children, women of color, and LGTB youth are the most vulnerable victims of modern day slavery


Ending Human Trafficking begins when communities and individuals stand up and proclaim that everybody is a person of sacred worth and we will not accept that anyone should live in slavery
