Background. There are 27 million people enslaved and trafficked world-wide. About 50,000 to 60,000 children are kidnapped and sexually exploited in the USA. A conservative estimate is that about 200,000 to 300,000 children, young teens, adult women and men are enslaved and trafficked in the USA. Four of the largest centers where this is occurring in California are in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange Counties.
