"(a) sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which
the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age; or (b) the recruitment, harboring, transportation,
provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of
subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery."

What is trafficking in persons?
Trafficking in persons — also known as "human trafficking" — is a form of modern-day
slavery. Traffickers often prey on individuals who are poor, frequently unemployed or underemployed, and who may lack access
to social safety nets, predominantly women and children in certain countries. Victims are often lured with false promises
of good jobs and better lives, and then forced to work under brutal and inhuman conditions.
It is a high priority of the Department of Justice to pursue and prosecute human traffickers.
Human trafficking frequently involves the trafficking of women and children for sexual exploitation, a brutal crime the Department
is committed to aggressively investigating and prosecuting. Trafficking also often involves exploitation of agricultural and
sweat shop workers, as well as individuals working as domestic servants.
The Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution outlaws slavery and involuntary servitude.
The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000 (VTVPA) supplements existing laws and establishes new tools
and resources to combat trafficking in persons and to provide services and protections for victims.
