While much of the news this week has been focused on the impeachment of our current president, women, men, and children are held in the grip of human trafficking. January is Human Trafficking Awareness month, and we have a few more days to ensure that the victims and survivors of human trafficking are not forgotten. Please take a moment today and focus your attention on a very real problem impacting thousands of vulnerable women, men and children.
Important Facts about Human Trafficking
What Can You Do Today to Help?
Know the Signs – Learn the red flags and indicators of human trafficking. Don’t ignore that feeling in your gut that something is ‘just not right.’
