Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery Don’t Exist In A Silo

Human trafficking is influenced by various factors that make people vulnerable to enslavement, including political instability, poverty, racism, gender inequality, addiction, and lack of education. Gender-based violence and human trafficking share several factors that increase the vulnerability of women, such as gender discrimination and poor education and health infrastructure. Immigrants and migrants are also at high risk, particularly with existing U.S. immigration policies.

Structural and institutionalized racism has fueled policies that stunted economic opportunities for people of color. Businesses and corporations have a significant role in eradicating modern-day slavery, while there needs to be a greater focus on protecting labor rights to reduce vulnerability. Access to equal economic protections and expanded social services and safety nets can make a significant difference in bringing down systems that victimize Black, Latino, and Indigenous communities.
