Every year 600.000 – 800.000 people are trafficked across international borders – which means the number is larger as local trafficking is not included. The profit in this Dirty Business is roughly $150 billion a year and growing! This is the fastest-growing business in the world!
Familial trafficking is exactly what it sounds like, when a family member such as a parent, uncle, grandparent, guardian, etc., sells a child to a third-party trafficker. Most of us read this and think how could someone do that to their own child? Sadly, it's more prevalent than we'd like to be aware of. According to the data Polaris collected in 2020, situations of sex trafficking where recruitment was known showed that 42% were brought into trafficking by a family member.
