CAST is a non-profit NGO in the Los Angeles area that provides care and support services to sex and labor trafficking victims. Since 1999, CAST has collected detailed information related to the trafficking experiences of its clients. This unique database has allowed a seldom seen glimpse into the structure of economic networks that traffic people for their labor.
