Further Info on Awareness:

With the new year comes January – Human Trafficking Awareness and Prevention Month. This is a key month for agencies to spend time and effort building awareness around the very issue you are devoted to addressing. This work is overwhelming, and if you don’t have time or capacity to create resources for your community partners, here are some resources you can use:

If you want some quick shareable resources for your social media, the Human Trafficking Institute has an infographic, here.

NCOSE is hosting a webinar on sex trafficking that has a very introductory focus into the issue. If you are interested in sharing this on your social media or with relevant community partners, check it out here.

You can also share Polaris’ page on how to ‘Recognize the Signs.’

For those partners who are interested in a deeper look, Diane Langberg, PhD, has spoken around the US on trauma and human trafficking. You can share out her video on Complex Trauma.

We also suggest PAID FOR, a memoir by Rachel Moran, survivor of sexual exploitation and prostitution in Ireland.

If you agency has some effective tools for raising awareness that you would like to share with the Alliance community, please share in the comments!
