Human Trafficking in the Bay Area
It is one of the attracting places for human exploitation because of such diversity and superior advantages in technology. Due to a large a,out of immigrants that live in the Bay Area, there are larger amounts of trafficking due to the vulnerability of these immigrants. The Bay Area is known as the city of innovation, which means that the technology is constantly advancing and people have easier access to this technology. It is mostly Asian women who are involved in human trafficking because more immigrants from Asian countries have traveled to the Bay Area.
The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 20.9
million victims of human trafficking globally, including 5.5 million
children. 55% are women and girls.
Victims are frequently lured by false promises of a lucrative job,
stability, education, or a loving relationship.
Our solution to this problem is to create posters for people to put in
their windows like "neighborhood watch" ones. Our posters would
include the phone number that is called to report the issue. Human
traffickers rarely take the women outside the house so when neighbors
see these and feel the situation is suspicious they can call the
number and the people can go see if there is human trafficking going
Gateway Community Outreach, The YWCA Silicon Valley, and the San Francisco Department of Health can all spread awareness about Human Trafficking and can put an end to the distribution of humans for money.
