The average age of a victim ensnared by traffickers is 12, and the traffickers most often first meet and engage their targets online.
Social media can fight traffickers where they are tracking youth by sharing information and encouraging awareness online -- as well as among personal circles of friends, coworkers and others.
Consider becoming a social media amplifier today.
Many excellent sources of information about trafficking exist online, such as those listed on this website.
Information includes brief videos as PSAs, infographics, memes and links to the National Human Trafficking Task Force.
When you like, share, retweet and in many other ways distribute this information, you are helping to amplify the knowledge that makes it harder for human traffickers to operate in plain sight.
A few great starting points with social media-ready info to post are:
The Blue Campaign
The Polaris Project Initiatives
National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
The National Human Trafficking Hotline Widgets, etc.
As you and those around you become aware, again, this reminder is critical for your safety and the safety of bystanders and victims.
If you or someone you know or observe is in danger,
Call 911 Immediately.
If or someone you know suspects trafficking,
Call local law enforcement.
Do not engage with suspected criminals of any kind.
