This form of modern-day enslavement exists all over the U.S. but Cook County (Illinois) law enforcement arrests more sex traffickers than anywhere else in the country.
The Salvation Army's social justice programs give men and women re-entering society's mainstream the skills to be successful.
STOP-IT Anti-Trafficking Program
STOP-IT provides holistic services to people who are being trafficked (labor, sexual exploitation or domestic servitude).
