What can you do about Human Trafficking?

It is important to pay attention to how you feel. If something doesn’t feel right, it isn’t.

Tell someone else you trust if you think someone is trying to traffic you.

Remember that it is not your fault and you have done nothing wrong, even if someone had you do illegal things.

If you are in immediate danger, call 911!

Do not go anywhere with strangers. See the sections on boundaries for more information.

Make sure a friend, family member, or staff know where you are and how to reach you.

Do not use illegal drugs. See the module on illegal drugs. Human Trafficking and drugs are often closely connected because people control others by getting them addicted to illegal drugs.

If you think someone you know is being trafficked or in danger, tell someone you trust or call the police.

Remember that just because someone seems nice and friendly, it doesn’t mean they are nice and trustworthy. It takes time to get to know people and sometimes it helps to see what your family, friends, and other people you trust in your life feel about people in your life.
