Vision of Change & Goal ClarificationThe envisioned change of human trafficking is to educate the world about what is really going on, with key focus on groups that are affected, name women and children. To bring an end to human trafficking and the end results of it, we must first educate society about the problem. Human trafficking is the second largest illegal profitable criminal act that can be committed and we need to address it and bring it to the fore thought of society, steps need to be taken to help eliminate the perpetrators of human traffickers. “Meaning that those who are abducting, enslaving, abusing, and purchasing young women and children will lose their profit and be charged for the crime committed (Rezaeian, 2016).” However, to achieve this change and help stop slavery we first need to set some goals for how to educate and then prevent such acts. Developing an organization or foundation to set and achieve these goals is a first step. Some steps have already been made, as there is an organization that is known as the “End It Movement”.

Social Problem Analytic Framework: Human Traffickingfight for freedom. Each of our amazing coalition partners are doing the work, on the ground, every day, to bring awareness, prevention, and restoration (End it Movement, 2017).” Another step in the right direction is The Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA). The TVPA is the anti-trafficking law passed in 2000. What does the TVPA do for human trafficking? “From the constitutionality of the TVPA to strict liability for the sex trafficking of minors, criminal defendants brought numerous challenges to the TVPA’s elements, the evidence used to convict the traffickers, and the sentences imposed on them (Richmond, 2017, p. 294).” The TVPA takes steps to help protect and assist the victims of human trafficking.. It is for the survivors that the TVPA’s protections exist. Historical Background & Current Conditions One of the influences of human trafficking is the economy. Studies show that economic background is a cause of human trafficking because those that pulled into these acts, such as prostitution, are looking to find an enhanced economic opportunity. They are told that they can have a fulfilling career with plenty of benefits and wages, big money and all the things that come along with it. Their vulnerability is partially responsible for their falling into the trap of believing these false promises. They fall into the trap and are exploited into abuse and labor.
