How to Get Involved
There are many ways to get involved:
Pray. Become a prayer partner (see Intercession).
Educate Yourself. Review information on human trafficking to learn more and get connected.
Stay Alert. Know the red flags. If you think you see evidence of human trafficking, contact local law enforcement or the National Trafficking Hotline 1-888-3737-888.
Talk About it With Everyone. Many people in the U.S. are not aware this is happening in their own back yard. Share with your family, friends, church family, schoolmates, and colleagues.
Host an Awareness Event. You can integrate some sort of awareness activity during birthday parties, benefit concerts, direct-sales home parties, a mixer, or Sunday School classes for example.
Request a Speaker. We would love to come and share our story with your small group, church, or organization. Request a speaker here.
Contribute. Give of your time, treasures, talents, and spiritual gifts.
Write to a Government Official. Contact your state governor, legislators, and attorney general. Let them know you support tough legislature against perpetrators; more funding for victim services; and zero tolerance for human trafficking!
Support Fair Trade Initiatives. Fair Trade = No Slavery! Look at labels to ensure no labor trafficking occurred!
Support Survivor-Owned Businesses. As these men and women leave the industry to follow their dreams, they need support and encouragement. Will you be the one to help them in their journey? See here.
Employ a Survivor. Coming out of the sex industry and into mainstream corporate America can be challenging. Resume and job history, judgmental attitudes, PTSD or substance abuse are a few of the issues. Are you willing to extend grace and take a chance? Visit Helping Hands.
