Sign the Petition to Protect Victims of Human Trafficking

Last week, Rep. Amy Grant and House Republicans unveiled their anti-human trafficking legislative package designed to fight this epidemic head-on.

Human trafficking is defined as a form of modern-day slavery.  In 2021, the National Human Trafficking Hotline identified 243 human trafficking cases in Illinois, with 355 victims reported. 

Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some labor or commercial sex act. These acts include victims of all ages, races, and genders. The victims can be lured into these situations by violence, manipulation, false promises of well-paying jobs, or romantic relationships.
