KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU SEE IT

KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU SEE IT

After learning how to spot a sex trafficking victim, what is there to do? For starters, we never recommend putting yourself (and potentially the victim) in danger. This means no physical or verbal contact with the people you are watching. We have two recommendations for what YOU can do if you notice a likely trafficking situation;

  1. Call the National Human Trafficking hotline number at: 1 (888) 373-7888 OR

    Text/SMS: 233733 (Text "HELP" or "INFO")

    Hours: 24 hours, 7 days a week

    Languages: English, Spanish and 200 more languages

    Website: humantraffickinghotline.org

  2. Download the STOPTHETRAFFIK APP (click for link to download). We have fallen in love with this app as it allows you to safely report human trafficking with pictures, a video, and detailed information on what you are witnessing (location, vehicles, names, situation, etc.) See informative video below.
