January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month

January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month and a reminder that we can all do our part to recognize and report human trafficking. KNOW THE SIGNS. A trafficked child might:

• Have an adult control them by speaking for them.

• Seem out of place given the time of day or night.

• Look disheveled or dressed in clothes that they could not afford to buy.

• Show signs of physical abuse such as bruising or red marks.

• Not possess any form of identification.

• Perform inappropriate work for their age and not be compensated.
