Do you think of human trafficking when you see a beggar on the street? Is begging human trafficking? Under what circumstances?

Hollywood couple Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore join the UN in an anti-trafficking campaign. UN victims fund tries to allocate $1 million to front line NGOs.

I think kind of cool.

Susan Norris (SusanCNorris) | 4 comments Human trafficking is usually different than someone panhandling on the side of the road. "Trafficking involves an act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring or receiving a person through the use of force, coercion or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them for personal gain, usually monetary gain.

Good luck with your book, but isn't that an unfair statement?

Susan Norris (SusanCNorris) | 4 comments Thanks! As far as my statement, most people on the side of the road panhandling are not being forced or coerced by another to panhandle for money or food. Their situation may have led them to that choice, but they aren't being threatened with a beating or the rape or murder of a loved one if they refuse. Victims of sex trafficking by definition don't have a choice.
