The singer Summer Walker shared an important video of a TikToker who goes by the username Soulxchange to her Instagram page.

According to, about 24.9 million people of all races, ages, sexes, and backgrounds are human-trafficked worldwide. Sex trafficking and forced labor are two main reasons human trafficking exists. Yet, organ trafficking and human melanin extraction are also increasing worldwide trafficking. However, most human trafficking goes unreported and unprosecuted; the Human Trafficking Hotline had 328,255 reports between 2007-2020. California, Florida, and Texas show the highest United States cases of trafficking.

The beeline to human trafficking is becoming harder to follow. Traffickers are sometimes foreign officials, family members, acquaintances, neighbors, or school bus drivers, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. Law enforcement has discovered that many law-abiding citizens are covertly involved in the underworld of trafficking.

Practicing online safety, traveling in numbers, being aware of your surroundings, monitoring minors' cell phone and Internet activities, limited interactions, and limited exchange of information with unfamiliar people can help fight the war on human trafficking.
