July is Human Trafficking Awareness Month
Human trafficking is the most prominent form of modern-day slavery. It’s a multi-billion dollar international enterprise that preys on both adults and children. Over 100,000 children are estimated to face the horrors of sex trade in our own country.
While it’s hard to image this can happen in your own neighborhood, Ohio has some of the highest trafficking rates in the nation. It’s important to discuss these issues with family and friends to ensure you stay safe and stay vigilant.
There are many signs that you can observe and report while in public. For example, if you see an older man with younger females who seem submissive or fearful, report it. If you are in an establishment that has security measures that appear to keep people in rather than out, report it. Even if you aren’t sure what you’re looking at, but you know something feels wrong, report it. We all have a responsibility to speak up and report human trafficking situations for those who have been silenced. Call the national human trafficking hotline at 1-888-373-7888, or 911, to file a report and potentially save a victim.
