The exploitation of the world's young women, men, and children in sex trafficking is a tragic human rights offense. However, trafficking is not just a problem in other countries. Each year, men, women, and children from all over the world are brought into the United States for the sole purpose of being bought and sold by American citizens for commercial sex. As a co-chair and co-founder of the Human Trafficking Caucus, I am working to end this terrible crime both in New York and internationally.
