Human Trafficking Awareness

Human Trafficking “is a form of modern-day slavery. This crime occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will. Force, fraud, or coercion need not be present if the individual engaging in commercial sex is under 18 years of age. (National Human Trafficking Hotline, 2019).

Anti-Trafficking Program

Human Trafficking is happening in every community. According to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, Maryland has one of the highest rates of “domestic human trafficking in the nation”. Since 2007, the National Human Trafficking Hotline has received 3,729 calls and identified 974 cases in Maryland

The Eastern Shore region is especially vulnerable to trafficking due to factors including major highways, traffic corridors between large metropolitan areas, international airports, a seaport, truck stops, seasonal work, poverty, wealth, drug use, casinos, conventions, and overall lack of community awareness. Among the diverse populations impacted by human trafficking are children and adults; US citizens and foreign nationals; Cis-gendered and transgender nonconforming people.

Anti-Trafficking Program

The For All Seasons’ Anti-Human Trafficking Program provides trainings to professionals and the community on how to recognize the red flags and indicators of trafficking as well as how to respond to victims and get them the assistance they need.
