Traffic Report: Human trafficking was reported in ALL 50 states last year

“Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry where perpetrators profit from the control and exploitation of others. While it can be found during the Super Bowl, it can also be found at motorcycle rallies in South Dakota, in the fields of Florida, in gangs in California, and in brothels in Washington, D.C. It’s modern slavery, and it affects every corner of the country.” For more information and to take action, click here.

Support the Strengthening the Child Welfare Response to Trafficking Act

“Homeless teens. Kids in foster care. Young adults who run away from abusive group homes. Minor sex trafficking victims have had contact, often multiple times, with a child welfare system not always prepared to help them (see below for statistics). This bill helps use existing resources to better serve these vulnerable youth.” For more information and to take action, click here.

Jan Dalske wrote an article about human trafficking and it appeared in various local Sacramento newspapers. A portion of the article reads:

“Human trafficking is a form of modern day slavery. It flourishes from the lack of community awareness. Victims are in plain sight. Those who are being trafficked include young children, teenagers, men and women. “

Dalske also provides resources for victims of human trafficking and offers advice about how to recognize and help victims and survivors.
