Recognizing Human Trafficking

While not an exhaustive list, these are some key red flags that could alert you to a potential trafficking situation that should be reported:

- Living with employer - Poor living conditions - Multiple people in cramped space - Inability to speak to individual alone - Answers appear to be scripted and rehearsed - Employer is holding identity documents - Signs of physical abuse - Submissive or fearful - Unpaid or paid very little - Under 18 and in prostitution

Abductors, pimps, organized crime rings and terrorists will continue to highly profit off of human beings through slavery. By taking action and sharing information, we become part of the solution.
