Honoring Survivors and Their Stories: Human Trafficking Awareness Month
Lian* is a foreign national, brought here to Ventura County from China under false premises and forced into the sex trade. She knew no one in the United States, no family, friends, or contacts – no support network at all. She was cut off from everyone she knew, unable to communicate with her family at home.
Human trafficking happens all over the world, on a regular basis, including here in Ventura County. Human trafficking is a crime in which force, fraud, or coercion is used to compel a person to perform labor, services, or commercial sex. It affects all populations: adults, children, all genders, foreign nationals, U.S. citizens, and all economic classes.
