Here are the most Frequently Asked Questions regarding Florida Abolitionists and Human Trafficking.
What is Human Trafficking?
In the United States, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines “severe forms of trafficking in persons” as sex trafficking or “the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.”
What is an abolitionist?
A person who advocates or supports the abolition (or end) of slavery and the slave trade world-wide.
An abolitionist and an anti-slavery supporter are not one and the same. An abolitionist is a anti-slavery supporter, but a anti-slavery supporter is not necessarily an abolitionist. FA defines an abolitionist as someone who has gone a step further than support and is now actively working towards ending modern-day slavery.
