Sexual assault victims who are deaf face unique issues not encountered by the hearing, according to a recent study funded by the National Institute of Justice. ( http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/nij/journals/257/deaf-victims.html#note1#note1 ) Researcher Jennifer Obinna and colleagues at the Minneapolis Council on Crime and Justice interviewed 51 deaf citizens, 15 service providers (both deaf and hearing), and 10 police officers in their investigation of the impact of sexual assault on members of the deaf community. ( http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/nij/journals/257/deaf-victims.html#note2#note2 ) In their final report on the project, the researchers offered recommendations for improving the relationship between law enforcement and the deaf community.

Trafficking in persons is modern-day slavery, involving victims who are forced, defrauded or coerced into labor or sexual exploitation. Annually, about 600,000 to 800,000 people -- mostly women and children -- are trafficked across national borders which does not count millions trafficked within their own countries. The U.S. Department of State has created a photo gallery of images of human trafficking, link to: http://www.gtipphotos.state.gov/gtip.cfm?type=image&galleryID=542&id=1
