Human Trafficking Prevention Month

Updated: Jan 21, 2022

Since 2010, our country has dedicated January to raise awareness about human trafficking. This gives many the opportunity to educate others about trafficking domestically and abroad. Human Trafficking includes both forced labor and sex trafficking which undermines the rule of law, robbing millions of their dignity and freedom.

This terrible atrocity has affected many people worldwide. From teens to adults, many are trapped in a situation where they are not safe and cannot leave.

Fortunately, there are many people fighting to stop this terrible horror. There is so much information written but cannot be copied in this blog. Save this phone number which is the National Human Trafficking Hotline: 1-888-373-7888.

Read on for other websites which has a tremendous amount of information available to teach and assist anyone with human trafficking,

There is an estimated to be more than 40 million people around the world including the United States. The U.S. State Department has organized an official page to help awareness.

At Hope for Justice, they investigate cases of human trafficking and work closely with law enforcement to rescue victims and ensure evidence is gathered against perpetrators to see them brought to justice. Their team of investigators is drawn from some of the most respected and prestigious law enforcement agencies in the country, such as the FBI and NCIS. See more from their website below:

As you may know, young people with less resources than others can be subjected to being trafficked or forced into illegal work. The Lanier Law Firm has put together a guide about the connection between the trucking industry and human trafficking. They have included information about why human trafficking is prevalent in trucking, how people are victimized, and how at-risk people can end up in these situations. Check it out:

Children's Rights: Children are particularly vulnerable to exploitation, especially children connected to the child welfare system. In the U.S., 60 percent of domestic child trafficking victims come from foster care and group homes. Check out this website which has great amounts of information to help adults protect them.

From DeliverFund, there is information here about Human Trafficking. As it says on their website: “Knowledge is power. Read about what human trafficking is really like in America and what you can do as a citizen to join the fight to end it.” See website here:

From Native Search Solutions: Native Search Solutions (NSS) is a new and innovative organization that focuses on Missing & Murdered Indigenous Persons (MMIP) cases. Missing person investigations are complex and if not resolved in a fairly short amount of time, the investigation will most likely come to an impasse. NSS will use new and innovate technologies that will supplement tribal law enforcement’s MMIP investigations. Regardless of the tribal police department’s size, resources or budget; these tools will be made available to add to their investigations.

Native Search Solutions wants to work with MMIP Advocacy groups by giving them a resource in their search for the missing and help liaison with law enforcement agencies by navigating them in the investigative process. NSS has partnered with Native American Fatherhood and Families Association (NAFFA) and Biometrica in establishing a MMIP fusion center located in Mesa, Arizona. This fusion center is a place to meet with other anti-human sex-trafficking groups; to collaborate our efforts as one resource.

Human Trafficking has been such a difficult challenge for so many communities. It’s heart breaking to see so many men, women and even children disappear from their homes. NAFFA hopes to help those communities bring hope and a resolution to families of those missing.
