Victims of human trafficking may look like students or patients you see everyday. Human trafficking is a global problem and is prevalent in the United States. During this presentation, we will provide an overview of human trafficking, as well as offer resources for learning more about how you can help.
Knowing the facts and asking the right questions will help determine if the person in front of you is a victim who needs your help.
