The Washtenaw Women's Court, a specialty program for human trafficking victims, is just one of the ways in which the University of Michigan #HumanTrafficking Clinic is working to fight what the Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking reports is "the second-largest and fastest-growing criminal industry in the world.” 
Michigan is in the top five states in the country for human trafficking, today’s “modern day slavery.” This is defined as working in the commercial sex, labor, or domestic work industries through the use of physical force, fraud, blackmail, or coercion. A recently published report by the Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking noted that, “Human trafficking is the second-largest and fastest-growing criminal industry in the world.”
