According to a 2016 Marin County Grand Jury Report, the occurrence of human trafficking in our county is mostly unrecognized, under-reported, and rarely subject to intervention. What is human trafficking? It’s not confined to sex trafficking of children and young adults, but also includes labor exploitation of individuals from vulnerable populations both domestic and international.
Human trafficking is the use of force, fraud, or coercion to exploit a person for labor or service. It includes commercial sex trafficking as well as involuntary servitude, debt bondage, and forced labor. After drug dealing, human trafficking is tied with the illegal arms industry as the second largest criminal industry in the world today, and is the fastest growing. Our esteemed panelists will educate lawyers, community leaders, and business professionals on the legal issues, practical aspects, and recognition of warning signs on this critical hidden issue affecting our community.
