SOLD: THE HUMAN TRAFFICKING EXPERIENCE

The District Attorney’s office is ready and willing to address the needs of victims and we are constantly seeking improvements in the overall systemic responses to victims of violence in Doña Ana County.  We are confident this exhibit will enlighten the community as to the lasting effects that human trafficking inflicts on its victims and what role we can play.

Much more than just an exhibit, SOLD is a multi-sensory experience that will educate you on the shocking reality of human trafficking, both locally and globally. Participants will be immersed into the lives of victims in nine different parts of the world. SOLD challenges participants to respond to human trafficking with justice, mercy and humility.

Human trafficking is the 2nd largest criminal industry in the world, 2nd only to drug dealing. Many victims are forced into prostitution or sex entertainment. But trafficking also occurs in the forms of domestic servitude, restaurant work, sweatshop factory work or migrant agricultural work.
