Human trafficking encompasses labor, domestic servitude, and sex trafficking. The Amnesty Local Groups are 1) addressing how trafficking is hidden in our communities; 2) illustrating the complexities in addressing the issue for both civil and political institutions; 3) explaining the complexities for law enforcement and legal entities to address the issue of both crime and victim adequately.
Amnesty International, with Ethical Culture, is endeavoring to provide channels of action for all concerned to express their intention through concerted actions, and to express their outrage and their desire to both publicize and eradicate these conditions
