January 2018 Proclaimed Human Trafficking Awareness Month

Franciscans Sisters of Perpetual Adoration co-sponsor video series on human trafficking

The profiles also contain information about state and territorial trafficking laws, as well as public resources, including collaborations, task forces, research, and publications available to help professionals who many encounter victims respond to trafficking.

Dozens of advocates, volunteers and public officials gathered along Blackstone Avenue on Thursday to raise money for the fight against human trafficking, one of the most prevalent and least understood crimes in Fresno County.

A new initiative is debuting for Livingston County this year, in time for National Slavery & Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

Dickey says victims of trafficking or anyone who has information on trafficking crimes can call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888.

Labor trafficking victims have been rescued from factories, farms, domestic services and small businesses.

The La Crosse Task Force to End Modern Slavery, founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, is co-sponsoring an online video series titled "The Faces of Human Trafficking". "Survivors say that 80 percent of them were in a medical facility and they weren't recognized as a human trafficking victim", said Evans.

The reports that sex trafficking victims in the United States have been found working in residential brothels, escort services, massage parlors, strip clubs and on the streets.


On January 11 is awareness day.

"Interstates around the country, you look at the trucking plaza, numerous trafficking victims are pimped out at these locations and it is the truckers that are on the front lines that are going to be able to see this", said Wilson. Just like most of these young girls, I thought he was going to give me the lifestyle I always dreamed of and when we got to Los Angeles he told me no this is what you are going to do. "I'm pretty much my own boss", said Gibson.

To report a possible human trafficking case, call ( TTY: 711).

The profiles were created by the National Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Center in coordination with the National Human Trafficking Hotline in order to complement the SOAR to Health and Wellness Training.

Free2Hope, a new center to support survivors of violence, sex and labor trafficking, opened Thursday on Barret Avenue. "We offer them the opportunity to go to counseling, be healed holistically, help with financial planning, they get to go to college or get a skill totally for free".

The state attorney general, along with county prosecutors and several police chiefs were also on hand for the announcement on what's been designated Human Trafficking Day in Oakland County.

She says some of the red flags can include people who haven't received medical or dental care for many years and maybe severely underweight or malnourished.
