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.
