Trafficking victims are still prevalent. Learn how to identify, approach, and report a victim to a local organization.

Individual Empowerment

When I worked at the Women’s Resource Center we received training on how to talk to a trafficking victim. I learned how to identify, approach, and report a victim to a local organization that rescued victims or to the police. It was a sad and eye-opening experience. As if there is not enough bad news to receive each day. However upsetting it is, I paid attention and I feel good knowing that there are amazing loving people who help victims, whom I can report suspected trafficking to. Please share this blog post with your network.  Talking about this crime and making it a public issue is a simple act we can each do to create a safer, healthier, happier world.

Human trafficking is the exploitation of another human and is a form of slavery.  I used to think smuggling was the same as trafficking, but that is not necessarily true.
