Although human trafficking occurs around the world, you may be shocked to learn that it happens in the US too, in all 50 states. “The U.S. is a source, destination, and transit point for trafficking victims.” Children are especially vulnerable if they are runaways, homeless and victims of abuse or neglect. Then it is hard to break the cycle. They fear their abductor, may be brainwashed to believe they don’t deserve better, are hidden from others (especially those that want to help), etc.

UNICEF is working toward the goal of ending child trafficking in a myriad of ways:

  • Working with governments
  • Teaching about the injustice and gender inequality
  • Providing safe havens

You can find more information on how to end child trafficking on the UNICEF USA’s End Traffickingpage. Read and take the steps in their toolkit. Follow @EndTraffick and @UNICEFUSA on Twitter and use the hashtag #EndTrafficking. Like the UNICEF USA page on Facebook and ask others to do so. Share and use the National Human Trafficking Hotline number, 1-888-373-7888 to report cases. You can get training as well.
