Human trafficking is depicted in countless books, movies, news channels, and media outlets. These platforms are powerful tools for raising awareness. However, not all depictions are guaranteed to be accurate, helpful, or ethical for those hoping to become better informed on the issue of modern slavery. As a result, documentaries have the potential to be excellent resources. As compared to movies, TV shows, and some books, documentaries tend to use real people who are connected to the trafficking industry rather than actors. Because they depict real people, documentaries tend to be less at risk of sensationalizing the issue of trafficking.

Or, maybe, you heard about the recent case in Ohio where three girls were kidnapped and kept as sex slaves…and you thought it was just one guy with a serious problem. Think again.
