Sex trafficking is a form of human trafficking that is considered modern day slavery. Some of the biggest reasons that sex trafficking occurs is because of power dynamics, structural violence, gender inequality, and racism. This research focuses on an agency that works with survivors, changing the perspectives of lawmakers, teaching citizens about sex trafficking, the discourse that occurs when speaking about sex trafficking, and other aspects. I ask why and how sex trafficking occurs, how people are working to change laws, and how agencies are changing people’s perceptions of what trafficking is.
