Resolution on the Prevention of Child Trafficking
Although accurate data regarding trafficking are difficult to obtain given the nature of trafficking, it occurs worldwide, including in every state in the United States. The International Labour Organization estimates that 26% of victims are children. Many factors can make young people vulnerable to becoming trafficked or becoming traffickers, including poverty, family violence, exclusion, and migration. To address these challenges and in keeping with our values and approach, we advocate for a human rights-based focus on prevention of child trafficking, both among those vulnerable to becoming trafficked and those vulnerable to becoming traffickers.
