What You Can Do to Stop Human Trafficking
January 26, 2023
Hosted by Dr. Virgie Bright Ellington
For this last week of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, Ali Boak of the Global Center on Human Trafficking returns to talk about human trafficking in especially vulnerable populations. Joined by Global Center on Human Trafficking Communication Specialist and lived-experience expert Christabelle Robinson, Ali reveals more tips on how to spot subtle, not-so-obvious signs of trafficking in children, LGBTQ persons, and those who are intellectually and/or physically disabled. At the end of this hour, you're going to learn how you can identify and help those who are at higher risk of being trafficking victims. If you're concerned that you or someone you know may have been tricked or forced to work against their will, please call the Human Trafficking National Hotline 888.373.7888, or text HELP to BEFREE (233733).
