How can you help end human trafficking?

Human trafficking doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It is the predictable end result of a host of other failures in our society that leave people vulnerable to exploitation. That means we can all play a role in reducing and ultimately ending sex and labor trafficking by working within our communities to ensure everyone has an opportunity to freely choose how they live and work.

“I was used, like a piece of clothing you wear, like I was not a person. Everything was a nightmare, like a horror movie – except at a horror movie you can see what was happening. But for me, it was happening behind the door, so no one knew.”

– Fainess, human trafficking survivor.
