Abstract

Human trafficking is a social issue where the victim’s trauma, abuse, and neglect contribute to their victimization. The misconception and misinformation of human trafficking allows for people to not be aware of when they are at risk of becoming victims. This paper will examine how people are more in danger from human traffickers and how the trauma they experience potentially affects their future. I will also explore human trafficking at a local level by researching policy in the United States and the growing estimation of human trafficking cases in Florida and Tampa Bay.
