January is dedicated to raising awareness of human trafficking. It is a key time to educate ourselves about human trafficking and learn how to spot the signs of trafficking.
Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing information on how to identify and prevent this crime. There are many misunderstandings surrounding human trafficking, so here are some common myths and what the reality is.
If you or someone you know might be a victim of human trafficking, you are urged to call 911 or the local authorities. You can also call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888 or text 233733.
