Abuse is any action that intentionally harms another person. An aspect of abuse, called human trafficking is forcing, exploiting or coercing a person to provide labor or services, or to engage in sex acts for money. It is a dark aspect of our society that may would rather pretend does not exist.
Victims of abuse are not limited to a certain age or group of people. They are children and adults. They are documented and undocumented foreigners, as well as Americans. They are people who have been abducted, but also people who have been coerced, deceived or threatened into performing certain labor or services.
Survivors have two options to publicly identify their abusers and seek a recovery. They are not limited and may pursue both avenues: civil claims and criminal charges.
Regarding the criminal charges, the survivor can file a complaint with the police to pursue a criminal action against the perpetrator(s). In the civil justice system, the survivor can file a complaint against the perpetrator(s), and any negligent person, institution, business, etc. that enabled the perpetrator and permitted the crime to occur or continue.
