Often referred to as "modern day slavery," human trafficking is the practice of exploiting adults and children as commodities through sexual and/or labor servitude. New York State ranks fifth in the nation as having one of the worst human trafficking problems. It is reported that more than 2,366 youths were identified as trafficked, exploited or at risk in 2017 in New York.

Children are especially vulnerable to trafficking including the following populations: runaway and homeless youth, children in the foster care system, children with disabilities, LGBTQ youth, immigrants and non-English speaking children.
