Key Points

  • Think about if there are already organizations in your community that would allow you to get involved in the fight against human trafficking.
  • Housing is a huge need for human trafficking victims.
  • There are many different types of survivors, between labor trafficking and sexual trafficking and all their subcategories.
  • It doesn’t matter how informed we are if we don’t have a safe place for victims to go.
  • Human trafficking is not a new phenomenon, but we now have a much greater awareness of it.
  • Learn from survivors.
  • Many survivors are abusing drugs or alcohol, some being forced to and some using it to numb themselves from the pain.
