Anti-Human Trafficking

UMOS’ Latina Resource Center (LRC) operates the Wisconsin Regional Anti-Human Trafficking Program (WRAP), a statewide program aimed at expanding the capacity of Wisconsin communities to identify and protect domestic and foreign-born victims of labor and sex trafficking as well as enhance the quality and quantity of services available to victims and survivors.

What is Human Trafficking?

U.S. law defines human trafficking as the use of force, fraud, or coercion to compel a person into commercial sex acts or labor against their will.

Labor Trafficking

Labor trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purposes of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery (22 USC § 7102).  (humantraffickinghotline.org)
