Human Trafficking

It is estimated that thousands of children are trafficked into the United States each year, and potentially hundreds of thousands of children are trafficked within the US, for labor or commercial sexual services. These children suffer physical, sexual, and emotional violence at the hands of traffickers, pimps, employers, and others. Much of the current response to human trafficking in the United States has addressed survivors as one homogenous group, without allowing for the special needs of children. These children often fall through the cracks and do not receive the protections that they are afforded under international, federal, and (some) state laws.

In response to this systemic crisis, the Center for the Human Rights of Children collaborates with a continuously-expanding network of individuals and organizations on a number of different projects:
