California harbors 3 of FBI’s 13 highest child sex trafficking areas in the nation: Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego. [2]

Foreign nationals are also brought into the U.S. as slaves for labor or commercial sex through force or fraud. [3]

The prevalence and anonymity of the internet has fueled the rapid growth of sex trafficking, making the trade of women and children easier than ever before.

Out of 234 years of black slavery in the United States, there were close to 7.5-8 million slaves imported to the U.S. However, out of an estimated 64 years of Human trafficking, there is an estimated 12.5 to 30 million slaves worldwide. If we take the lowest number (12.5) this is a 40% increase in 75% less time.
