Social Media Campaigns

Raising awareness about human trafficking is key to preventing it. Our social media campaigns and toolkits are designed to combat misinformation and provide accurate language to talk about human trafficking. Help us spread the word by sharing our graphics and written key messages with your networks.

Love and Trafficking

Contrary to popular misconceptions, sex trafficking rarely begins with kidnapping by a stranger. Instead, sex traffickers groom their victims by using love – romantic love, friendship and familial love – to manipulate them into cooperating in their own exploitation. Understanding the realities of how love is often used as a weapon in situations of human trafficking is critical to preventing it.

Listen to Survivors

If public information about human trafficking is inaccurate or misleading, people in trafficking situations will have an even harder time recognizing their experience as human trafficking and finding a way to break free. It’s time to listen to survivors and represent their lived experiences.

Pride Month

Discrimination and its manifestations are one of the key reasons that people who identify as LGBTQ+ – particularly young people – can be especially vulnerable to human trafficking. Traffickers prey on their very real economic needs and on their need for a sense of community and belonging.
