Technology, including social media and classified websites like Backpage.com, are widely viewed as responsible for the explosion of sex trafficking in the United States. Our own research backs this up.

Attacking Trafficking exists
to provide education, awareness and context to the global problem of Human Trafficking;
to build community coalitions to stop enslavement of men, women and children;
to care for those victimized; and
to help prevent the victimization of future generations.
