Human trafficking is the unlawful movement of individuals, more often than not for work or sex.”Human trafficking is the third-largest criminal activity in the world.” (“Involuntary Servitude”). Sadly, most people do not realize this is done easily and often. There are little girls out there getting hurt by being sexual exploited, sold into prostitution, constrained in the process of sex or work, removal of organs, or even worse. It’s not just little girls either; about 3,698 out of 4,460 were women, so that means 660 of these people were not women, and 2,812 out of 4,460 were adults. (“Hotline Statistics”). These are some scary statistics. Another frightening fact is “Almost four million people are trafficked worldwide each year.” (“Florida Health”). That’s way more people than most people can even comprehend. These are just the people we caught, there are more we do not even know about in this imprisonment, and we must change it. The total signals of human trafficking made were 162,660 since 2007. There were 25,727 calls in 2016, but only 7,621 human trafficking cases were reported. Just in the first 5 months of 2017, there were 13,897 calls, and 4,460 cases reported. (“Hotline Statistics”). This means many people have been through this, but way less than half of them did not make a case for it. This is another problem because if they want to get justice, they need to go to court. Then, when the criminals are put behind bars, it is not long enough. We need to find a solution to this problem so more people do not get hurt or exploited by these terrible people who force individuals into human trafficking. Solution OneThe Human Trafficking Legal Center is working with the victims to get justice. Female survivors are quite often casualties of sex or work trafficking, or servitude. They are somewhere in the age of 20-60, and “from the Philippines, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, India, and the United States.” Shockingly, kids are the to the least probable to be victims of sex trafficking. That’s a big age range and many countries, so that’s a lot of people impacted by that. The criminal restitution is mandatory in the United States. However, it is only done in 27% of the cases filed each year, and as stated before, way less than half of the victims file a case. The HT Legal Center is driving inventive national efforts to utilize common suit to consider awful traffickers responsible. This is so necessary because these criminals need to be put behind bars, or face some kind of consequence, and currently, most of them are not. A lot more people than you think are impacted by this. For the past 5 years, they have prepared 3,200+ lawyers, and made 250+ cases of free lawful portrayal. This is a great start to helping get justice, and getting these criminals in prison. They even have a “95% success rate.” (“HT Legal Center: Bridge to Justice”). That is a high rate, and that is a very good sign because that shows hope that maybe someday we will be able to stop this problem. Even after the survivors see the criminal in jail, the Human Trafficking Legal Center helps victims start all over with counseling, and mentorship. This association seems to know what they are doing, and they are making an impact on the world, even if it is just a bit at a time. This solution may help the victims get justice, and punish the criminal, but it does not do much to help the victim get back on their feet after being taken from everything they have. Solution TwoThe Proyecto de Derechos Economicos, Sociales y Culturales A.C. is a is a non-legislative association that tries to stop criminals and labor trafficking in Mexico. They have been protecting agrarian communities since 2005. ProDESC tries to defend the indigenous men and women, so they will not lose their land, territory, assets, and labor human rights. They worked with the Mexican civil society to help defend their rights. Therefore, they try to help stop human labor trafficking mostly. They created a class about autonomy and freedom determination. They also talk about the problems with violations of their territory and labor. The organization knows it hurts the indigenous men and women when this happens because it is a violation of basic rights that all humans have. (“ProDESC”). Some of these victims have died or were in critical conditions because of these situations. The ProDESC has made many efforts to help this community recover from being treated like this, but it is mostly just trying to give people their rights back. Solution ThreeThe last solution is Cast: The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking. It is an organization advocating for policies, legislation, counseling, legal resources, housing, educational training, leadership training, and mentorship. They are the “nation’s largest provider of comprehensive, life-changing services to survivors, and an advocate for groundbreaking policies and legislation.” Now that is a big title to uphold being the nation’s largest provider. They have made 350+ survivors more empowered, provided 6,194 legal services, 6,782 social services, and 1,347 hotline calls. This makes me happy that they have helped all these people. Also, it is really good they have a hotline because when that happens to someone, they may not always know who to talk to. They have been doing this for a couple decades. They support 1000s of survivors become free; they counsel, mentor, use legal resources, house victims, give out leadership training, and educate people about it. It is so sweet they do all of this for free, and help these people get back on their feet, gaining enough strength to face the world again after such a traumatic occurrence. Their training includes pro bono, legal anti-trafficking weekly work groups, social services technical assistance call every month, 16-hour legal training, and 8-hour legal services training for social service providers. Their programs include the hotline, emergency response group, social services, legal services, shelter, youth program, survivor leadership, partnerships, outreach, technical assistance training, advocacy policy, and public policy. (“Cast”). These are tons of helpful training programs to help these victims. This program helps the victims get back on their feet, but it does not really give them justice.Which One is the Best?The first solution, The Human Trafficking Legal Center, is the most beneficial to punish the criminal, which helps stop them from doing it ever again, especially if they are put into a jail for life. It might not completely stop all of them, but it will at least diminish the number of people being victims of human trafficking. They even helped over 250 legal representation cases for free. This is definitely helpful to victims because if they win the case, they can see the criminal who ruined their lives go behind bars. The second solution, The Proyecto de Derechos Economicos, Sociales y Culturales A.C., is very helpful to victims in Mexico; however, it is not very helpful anywhere else. Even if it is useful to the indigenous people, it does not do much other than raise awareness. The third solution, Cast: The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking, is the most beneficial to making the victims feel tough again. It will enable them to recoup, and move toward becoming themselves once more. All the training and recovery programs help the victims feel stronger, which is very valuable to these survivors. Since The HT Legal Center and Cast: The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking are the most logical because they would solve the problem on bigger scales. On the other hand, the Proyecto de Derechos Economicos, Sociales y Culturales A.C. will impact the least because it is only in one single place instead of multiple places or worldwide. The second solution, the Proyecto de Derechos Economicos, Sociales y Culturales A.C., is also helpful. However, it will not get the same results the other two solutions, The Human Trafficking Legal Center and Cast: The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking. The ProDESC will mostly just raise awareness, and tell people that human trafficking like sex trafficking and labor trafficking are still occurring in today’s society. It will also state how we must stop it; however, that will not stop it. Overall, the best option is a combination of The Human Trafficking Legal Center and Cast: The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking because they punish the criminals and help the victims. Final ThoughtsIn conclusion, the hybrid solution of The Human Trafficking Legal Center and Cast: The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking put together is the best. It punishes the criminal-possibly for life-so they will not be a part of human trafficking. Again, this will significantly bring down the numbers of people who are victims of sex trafficking and labor trafficking. It also ends up helping out the victims, getting them recovered, preparing them to be in leadership, and giving them mentors. As said earlier, four million people every year are victims of human trafficking. We would be able to lower that number if we punish the criminal harder and support the victims, for example, in The Human Trafficking Legal Center and Cast: The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking solutions. These would help lower the number of people who are victims of sex trafficking or labor trafficking. Rather than there being more than four million individuals who are casualties, there will be short of one million. There will also be one million survivors out of those one million victims. If they all survived, we would not have lost so many innocent lives. The world would be more lighthearted. We can change the world, and make the world a much better place, just by implementing The Human Trafficking Legal Center and Cast: The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking solutions. With these two solutions, we can help these victims survive, and eventually, we can stop forced human trafficking forever.
