Do you like road trips? So do we.
Did you know you can help shine a light on human trafficking just by stopping at the rest areas along the way? Since truck stops and rest areas are located between towns along the highway, once a trafficker drops the girls off to be sold, there is no where they can run. Help by being aware, looking for things that are out of place, and reporting anything you see. For the ladies, when you are in the bathrooms and notice a young girl alone, take note and don’t be afraid to engage in conversation. Human trafficking is hidden in plain sight and any help, as little as you believe it might be, can make a difference. A big difference!
If you see any signs of exploitation and trafficking call the US Human Trafficking Hotline at (888) 373-7888 or text BEFREE or HELP to 233733, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you think you have seen a missing child, or suspect a child may be sexually exploited, contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children 24/7 at (800) 843-5678.
