What is Human Trafficking?
Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery — a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 20.9 million people around the world. And no matter where you live, chances are it’s happening nearby. From the girl forced into prostitution at a truck stop, to the man discovered in a restaurant kitchen, stripped of his passport and held against his will. All trafficking victims share one essential experience: the loss of freedom.
How do I report or help a victim of human trafficking?
There is a national hotline in the United States set up to help. Please call National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline 1 (888) 373-7888
What can I do in the help against human trafficking?
You may not be the kind of person who will travel across the world or start your own non-profit. You don’t have to be, we still need you! If you’re not sure where to start, volunteer at a fundraiser or walk at a local Freedom Walk. Talk to your friends, family, co-workers and your church about the realities of modern day slavery and then plan to support a reputable organization. The point is that everyone can and should be a part of the solution.
