Escapology: Escaping Restraints & Other Counter-Trafficking Tactics
Why This Class is Needed
Human trafficking generates profits of roughly $150 billion per year for traffickers. Approximately $99 billion of this comes from commercial sexual exploitation. Globally, an estimated 71% of enslaved people are women and girls, while men and boys account for 29%. As you can see, this is not a problem for just females!
Trafficking involves transporting someone into a situation of exploitation. This can include forced labor, marriage, prostitution, and even organ removal. It’s estimated that internationally there are between 20 million and 40 million people forced into modern slavery at this very moment. Estimates show that, internationally, only about .04% survivors of human trafficking cases are identified and the vast majority of these cases go undetected.
