There are three kinds of human trafficking - labor, sex, and organ harvesting.
There are many signs of human trafficking and if you have that feeling that something does not look right, you are probably right. You can learn more about how to identify trafficking from one of The Demand Project Partners, OnWatch
First, take a picture of a license plate if there is a vehicle and write down every detail you can describe about your surroundings, the potential victim-trafficker-buyer. DO NOT FOLLOW in your own car or by foot, you are not law enforcement. Second, call the Police (911) and then call the Trafficking Hotline (888) 373-7888. Third, call a local trusted anti-trafficking organization.
Labor trafficking is when a person uses force, fraud, or coercion to make another person work for them without getting paid or having benefits.
Sex trafficking is when one person uses force, fraud, or coercion to make another person have sex with them or someone else for money, drugs, or anything of value.
Organ harvesting is when one person uses force, fraud, or coercion to take another person's organs (liver, kidney, etc.) without their consent and sometimes without their knowledge.
Call the Police (911) and then call the Trafficking Hotline (888) 373-7888. Third, call a local anti-trafficking advocacy organization. If you are uncomfortable calling the police by yourself or filing a police report, call our hotline and we will help you through it.
