JANUARY IS NATIONAL SLAVERY & HUMAN TRAFFICKING PREVENTION MONTH

What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery involving the illegal trade of human beings for the purpose of exploitation or commercial gain. Human trafficking is a detriment to our economy, the safety, and health of our nation, and the very dignity of our society. Since human trafficking is often a crime that is hidden in plain sight, it is important to be aware of its warning signs.

Some indications that a person may be a victim of human trafficking include (especially in the case of women and children):

  • Appearing malnourished
  • Showing signs of physical injuries and abuse
  • Avoiding eye contact, social interaction, and authority figures/law enforcement
  • Seeming to adhere to scripted or rehearsed responses in social interaction
  • Lacking official identification documents
  • Appearing destitute/lacking personal possessions
  • Not allowing people to go into public alone, or speak for themselves

HELPFUL RESOURCES:

If you notice suspicious activity in your community,
call the ICE Tip Line at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE or report tips online.
