Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world and is considered the second largest criminal enterprise in the world, only surpassed by the sale of drugs. It is estimated that it is over a $32 BILLION dollar industry. There are two distinct forms of trafficking: Sex & Labor and involves the exploitation of a person through force, fraud, or coercion. The SW MI Human Trafficking Task Force is committed to raising awareness and educating others about the realities of human trafficking. Funds raised through Bravelet purchases will help provide law enforcement, hospitality, education, healthcare, social services, or the general public with updated training in the field of anti-human trafficking.
